"This is so simple and quick to do and you will have the most moist turkey breast to just slice and serve. The skin even browns in the crock pot. I like to make gravy and serve this as hot turkey sandwiches. This includes a simple tasty way to make the gravy."

"We loved this way of cooking a turkey breast. It came out so very tender. I did make a little mixture of olive oil,minced garlic, onion powder, Rosemary, Basil, Thyme, Sage, sea salt and fresh ground black pepper. I love a lot of seasoning on my turkey. Rubbed the mixture under the skin and all over the turkey. The gravy was really good, added Kitchen Bouquet Browning & Seasoning Sauce to the gravy to give it a nice brown color. Will be using your recipe many times."
"EAT! DRINK! NAP! (Oh, fine...but without the explanation points.)"
"The turkey was great. I didn't need to make the extra gravy as I had about 4 cups of good flavored broth from cooking the turkey, it seems my crockpot make a lot of liquid."
"I am so happy to find this Great way to cook a turkey breast - can't believe it took me 9 years from when you posted this to finally find and try it! The little Butterball breast I threw in my basket was only 3.5 lbs, so I cut back the cooking time to 3 hours. We like lots of herbs, so I used SlickChick's suggestion of creating an olive oil/herb rub. Thankfully, Butterball included a bag of gravy starter inside the breast, so I had nice caramel colored gravy. I'll be sure to get a bigger breast next time so we have some leftovers! Thanks for sharing, Marie!"
"Wow! I'm a beginner cook and this turned out so amazing! I added the onions and celery to the hollow of the breast and then put seasoned salt all around. Cooked my 7lb. breast for 7 hours in my crock pot and wammo blammo, kapow - AWESOMENESS!!! So tender, juicy and tasty! Thank you food.com for helping me cook! My husband raved and he has never been a fan of my cooking!"
"Turkey was so easy! It came out incredibly moist! The gravy was just okay tasting but a very good consistency and color; I will definitely experiment with that and continue to use this turkey recipe! I served the turkey over stuffing. I had a little mini-Thanksgiving in January."
"used a similar recipe for my turkey breast (love the crock pot method for turkey breast!!), and used this method of mixing the flour with a small amount of liquid first for the gravy-- brilliant! Not a lump in sight! I'll use this technique from now on!"
"A very simple and tasty way to prepare a turkey breast. The meat was very moist and the flavor of the onions and celery had permeated every ounce. My turkey breast did not brown but that was not a problem for us as we were not going to eat the skin. The shape of the breast resulted in one side lying down in the crock pot. I think that I will turn it at about 6 hours next time so that the other side of the breast has some time in the cooking liquid too. Thanks Marie!"
"This turkey was oustanding!I followed the recipe as directed, but I did not make the gravy. I did not have time this time, but next time I definatley will make it. I will never make a turkey in the oven again! My whole family raved about it. So this is a definate keeper! Thanks for a great recipe!"
"This was awesome...very moist and it did brown slightly. I had never made just a turkey breast before because I was always afraid it would be too dry! It is definely my new favorite way to make turkey and it couldn't be easier!"
"Great turkey, moist and dee-lish ! The only problem I had with it was that I used a 7.5 lb breast and my six quart crock pot would not close. DH helped me cut the breast in half and it fit in nicely that way. We used an instant read meat thermometer to check for doneness. It is a keeper and thanks for sharing it."
"This is the only way I make turkey breast now. my family just loves this!"
"What a great way to cook a turkey breast! I decided at the last minute to do mine this way, so I had to cook it on high instead of low. For a 7-lb turkey breast, I cooked it for about 4 1/2 hours on high and then turned it to low for another 30 minutes or so. Mine didn't brown, but I stuck it in the oven for 30 minutes or so to get it a little brown. That didn't make it quite as brown as I'd like, but I was afraid to cook it any longer and dry it out. As it was, it came out very good--it was flavorful and moist, and the gravy was good, too. I used 1/2 cup of vermouth in place of part of the broth. It was so nice to have a delicious turkey without tying up the oven (and heating up the house) for hours! I'm going to make it this way from now on. Thanks for posting!"
"This was exactly what I wanted, a plain and simple recipe that would make awesome gravy too, and it did. Thanks Marie!"
"Good recipe for a busy day. Turkey was moist but it didn't brown."
"I love cooking in the crockpot. The meat was moist and had a nice flavor without a lot of hassle. I did put the turkey breast in the oven uncovered, for about 30 minutes while baking the bread. It browned nicely and did not dry out. For the gravy, I browned the flour lightly. It produces a nice rich colored gravy. "
