    Turkey

     I did a 6 pound bone in breast in a 6 quart Rival. Used a rub I thought I'd like. Warmed cans of cream of chicken, mushroom and celery soups along with a 4 oz. can of mushrooms on the cook top until they blended then poured it over the breast down bird and vegetables. I let it go until the internal temp made 170 then took it out and let it rest for 20 minutes or so.

    The soups blended with the juices from the turkey and made a nice gravy. Everything was tender and delicious.

    I've been doing my turkey breast for the last couple years in my crock-pot, too, and love it.  You don't get the crispy crust of an oven-cooked bird, but it comes out very moist and delicious, plus frees up your oven for the rest of the big meal. 

    I hadn't thought of making a gravy with the turkey, though, thanks Roy.  What kind of vegetables did you cook yours with?  Liz.

    You're most welcome, Liz.

    I used four small, unpeeled, diced red potatoes, two sliced carrots and about a half jar of pearl onions. There should have been a quarter teaspoon of garlic powder in there but I forgot it.

    Sissy, I stuff the breast with bread dressing that has lots of celery and raisins in it.  Then I put celery stalks in the bottom of the crock-pot for a 'rack' to set the breast on.  I don't serve the celery stalks, they're mostly to keep the meat up out of any greasy drippings, but I've been known to eat them myself, lol.  I also like to sqeeze a lemon over the breast, then put the halves into the crock-pot with the celery and a small amount of chicken broth...Liz.
