Recipe by: Danielle. Awesome recipe! I slow-cooked mine in the crock pot and the turkey breast just fell apart. It was more like pulled-turkey! I threw in some little red potatoes and had an instant meal. I was really disappointed with this. I marinated for over 24 hrs because of a change of plans and still the turkey tasted like plain turkey plus it took well over an hour to be done.

Just make sure you have room to put it in your refrigerator. As an Amazon Associate and member of other affiliate programs, I earn from qualifying purchases.
