    over 1000 mg of sodium per serving?!?!?! that certainly isn't healthy at all. If you are using the slow cooker, you don't need any broth at all. just roast on low... it should be juicy without all the broth and sodium. - 11/26/13

    I've tried to do a turkey breast in the crockpot, and there is no way you're going to get crispy-looking skin like in the picture. The breast was moist, but the skin will be like rubber. - 11/26/13

    I used a 3lb. turkey breast. Sprayed crock pot with olive oil spray. layered bottom of crock with pieces of whole wheat toast with chopped onion and chopped celery. Rubbed the turkey with olive oil then poultry seasoning, basil, sage and rosemary and laid turkey on top of toast mixture. Awesome! - 1/2/14

    I make this all the time (no broth- just water) ~ the turkey breast comes out so moist & delicious. I serve it with Roasted Veggies & Small Cut Up Red Potatoes all roasted together, quick easy meal for someone that works all day. I can still have the kids (adults) over on a work night for dinner. - 10/11/14

    If crispy skin were an issue, I could only rate this as "very good," but I don't eat the skin, anyway. I did add some celery and poultry seasoning and used no-salt-added broth. This was very tender and tasty. I will definitely make this again! - 11/30/13

    I don't think that a turkey breast in the slow cooker is going to look visually appealing without any kind of browning. It must of been one step you forgot to mention since your photo shows it crispy looking! - 11/26/13

  • I'm going to assume this picture is for another recipe because I don't see how the breast will get that nice roasted brown color unless you brush it with some kind of artificial browning sauce like Kitchen Bouquet. - 11/26/14

  • The full nutrition stats show that it was figured using turkey luncheon meat and Swanson's broth hence the HIGH sodium content. Can be reduced a great deal using fresh turkey breast and lo-sodium broth or no-sodium bouillon. - 11/26/14

  • I have a digital pressure cooker that browns, slow cooks makes rice & of course pressure cooks. This will be perfect...I will brown it first, then will use your wonderful recipe. I love this idea. Thank you very much...if people want it browned...they can brown it in a skillet first.... - 5/5/14

  • Do you put it under the broiler first to brown the skin and then put it in the slow cooker with broth? - 11/26/13

    My family only likes white meat....so this would be perfect for thanksgiving. Can someone tell me if they've tried using a thawed out whole turkey breast - like bone in, two breasts?

    This recipe makes it sound like it's for turkey breast you would find with chicken breast at the meat counter. - 11/26/13
