Turkey Breast (bone-in) in the Crockpot....recipes?
I've read just to put salt/pepper and let it on low for 8 hours....seems too simple.
I'm making it for easter, as well as a ham (don't ask!) and only have 1 oven and I hear great things about the crockpot for turkey.
Any suggestions? Do I brown it first? and if so, how? and is it really as easy as just salt and pepper and low? No carrots celery onions?
thanks in advance

Don't know how long you are planning to cook it but my experience on CP turkey has been mixed. I usually use the following recipe for italian pot roast and sub a bone-in turkey breast (http://www.pbs.org/everydayfood/recip...). When I cooked it for 10 hours on low that was way too long and the turkey was ropey and stringy. When I cooked it for 4 hours on high it was cooked through and falling off the bone but not really tender and braised (though moist). I would suggest keeping an eye on it and checking at about 6 hours if cooking on low.
Good luck and I'm sure it will turn out great.
Turned out great, VERY juicy actually....just washed and patted dry, then salt pepper and a packet of onion soup mix.
High for the first hour or so, then low...and it was done pretty quicky actually, probably 5 hours total maybe for a 6.5lb
I have some pics I'm uploading now.
Tasted great...no thanksgiving turkey, but very good nonetheless.
