"Who knew you could have turkey breast for a weeknight meal, and not just Thanksgiving? This recipe is easy to make, easy to clean up, ketogenic, and low-carb friendly. Your family will love this!" -Kori
Cooking the turkey in wine and the citrus juices low and slow makes for a VERY tender and juicy boneless turkey breast recipe.
Who doesn't love a super easy hands-off turkey recipe? Other than rubbing the turkey with olive oil and herbs, everything just gets dumped in the slow cooker, making life simple.
Crock pot turkey breast can be prepped ahead and turned on low well in advance of your dinner. This makes cooking dinner a breeze, especially if it's for a holiday meal and you have a bunch of recipes to get on the table!

Keto followers can add healthy fat by making gravy from the remaining juices in the pot.
