Absolutely delicious. I couldn't get a half turkey breast so I used two large chicken breasts. That was so good I may forget the turkey. :) Read More

Good flavor (although mild) but dry. I did 8 hours on low. I think next time I will try 7 hours and perhaps some broth in the bottom and/or double the cream cheese mixture. I did spread it both under and over the skin but there wasn't enough to cover the bottom. Read More

Absolutely delicious. My whole family loved it. I used a 6+ lb turkey breast and doubled the ingredients. The only thing I would do differently is use low-salt soy sauce because it was a little saltly. I am absolutely going to make this again. Read More

Words cannot describe the tenderness of this turkey. Better than any Thanksgiving turkey I have had. Pair it with mashed potatoes for a quick yummy meal. Dont forget to save some of the gravy for those potatoes! Read More

My turkey breast was about 5.75 pounds so I doubled the spice mixture and put it on high in my crockpot for about 4 hours. It made tons of very flavorful juice. I used my quick read thermometer and it read 165. It was done PERFECTLY and so moist even my picky non-turkey eating hubs loved it! I turned the crockpot off and left it in there until the rest of the meal was done. I strained the juices into a pot and mixed in the packet of gravy that came with my turkey breast from Target. It made the most wonderful gravy and the flavor was outstanding. Read More

i was apprehensive of this recipe. i managed to buy the last philly cream cheese with garden veggies at publix (seriously.) i cooked an hour on high then @ 7 hours on low. i used the whole container of cream cheese and doubled all other ingredients for my 6 lb. turkey breast. it's still moist 3 days later.

I tweaked just a little bit - I threw some slabs of butter under the skin - they didn't have whipped veggie cr chs, so used whipped chive instead - dbl'd all other seasonings - used a 6lb turkey breast....put the spread on the bird the night before and threw it in the crock pot it a small amt of low sodium chicken broth in the bottom - threw it in the next morning and cooked on high for close to 6 hrs but didn't need that long - trying to get the darn bird out of the crock pot, it basically imploded it was so tender - FELL APART - no carving necessary! extremely tender and juicy even after it cooled and reheated next day - this will be our standard Thxgiving recipe from now on. holy yum Read More

We went to friends for Thanksgiving this year so we had no leftover turkey for sandwiches which Hubs and I both love. So I decided to give this a try. My turkey breast half weighed just under 2 1/2 lbs but I made the entire amount of butter/cream cheese mixture. I put it liberally on both sides of the turkey breast and cooked it on high for 2 hrs. and 45 minutes which in my crock pot was just a bit too long. Next time I will start checking it at 2 1/2 hours if not sooner. This was good but I m not sure I liked the cream cheese in this. I like making a turkey breast in a crock pot but next time I think I will just season it with Sarah s Dry Rubbed Chicken seasoning also on this site. Read More

Ok this is my third time making, 2nd review. Today is an 8.5lb bone in breast. Thus, I 4x everything in the recipe except Parsley & Thyme because I ran out of both so subbed the difference with Herbs de Provence and only 3 TBS of Soy because I try and watch the sodium. I again mixed all with a mixer to 'whip' as I don't believe Philly makes whipped garden veg cheese (at least in my area, we only can find regular garden veg). 4x may have been extreme as this breast was loaded up with the heavenly cheese/butter mixture to the point I felt a bit guilty. I'd say I'm discarding about 1/4 cup. I'm also using a Slow Cooker Liner this time and going for 2 hours on high, then 6 on low and then I'll warm it till dinner time as I got this going at 9am. I also have another tub of the cream cheese which I will add to the mash potatoes as that worked quite well last time. Read More

A hit with my son, 19! I had to use bone-in chicken breasts which were a little over 4 lbs. So, I adjusted seasonings. My grocery store also didn't have whipped garden veg. cream cheese, so I bought the regular and then whipped it with a little water to get the same texture first. I served with jasmine rice and broccoli for a hearty and very easy meal. I couldn't follow the recipe exactly, but you can tell when you are starting with a 5-star recipe! Read More
