    My family loves this recipe! We make a couple of changes, however. We use boneless, skinless chicken breasts and add about 1/4 cup of creamy french dressing. The dressing adds a little tang. Sounds strange, but it's a hit every time I make it! We also bake it in the oven at 375 for approx an hour, rather than using the crock pot.

    Hi Megan, Thanks for the tip. I tried to buy 4 turkey breasts but all they had was 1 frozen medium size bird. I thought I could buy turkey breasts like chicken breasts but I guess not. I will try it your way. Blessings, Kerry Thanks for tip!

    This was fantastic! My youngest said he wouldn't eat it because of the cranberry but after he tried a bite he ate a huge piece. My mom really liked the sauce over a baked potato.

    @Megan, good tips. @Kerry, I don't know where you shop, but Central Market usually carries turkey breasts or turkey tenderloins. @Kristin, I'm so glad your family liked it!

    This is my husband's favorite! We have been buying the 3 lb. turkey breast to make this and doubling the recipe, but I would like to try with chicken breast as @Megan suggested.

    Megan, back to your chicken breast suggestion. Do you follow the recipe exactly with the chicken and just add the dressing and bake it. Wondering if I just add the dressing or do I omit anything in original recipe for turkey and then bake it. Confused. Thanks. Love, Kerry

    @Kerry, if you use chicken breasts you can decrease the cooking time by about half. Just make sure they are cooked all the way through.

    Can you take one turkey just the breast part and cook that it in the crock pot?

    Mine was burnt. I think it needed more liquid. I put the cranbery sauce on top, and it never got under the meat. Therefore the meat on the bottom was burnt-ish. The meat on the top was good, where the cranberry sauce was, but the bottom was burnt-o.

    I did use Chicken instead of turkey, because I could not find turkey at just 3 lb, the turkey I could find was like 6 lb or more.

    @Laura- Are you asking if you can just use one turkey breast instead of the 4 called for in the recipe?

    @Carlyn- Did you cook this recipe on high or on low? I know I have much better luck at cooking things in my crock-pot on low rather than on high. Next time you should also put some of the cranberry sauce on the bottom of the crock-pot to help prevent burning or add some additional liquid such as vegetable/chicken broth or cranberry juice.

    I cooked it on low. I work, though so I have to turn it on as a walk out the door and when it is done cooking, it switches to "warm". So it was still on warm when I got home from work.

    I would suggest next time putting the cooking liquid or sauce on the bottom of the crock-pot and putting the meat on top. And like I said you could always add some broth, juice, or water to the sauce if you are concerned about it especially if it will be 'cooking' for longer than the recipe states.

    I used a regular size and a small size of the jelly type cranberry and mashed it up and put it on the bottom of the crockpot. I cooked if for about 6 hours on low in the crockpot and it came out awesome. Served it with the a vegetable casserole dish.

    Sorry... I didn't like this one much. It didn't turn out as was expecting (like the picture). Mine was more like roast consistency and very tough. I cooked it for about 10 hours. Maybe too long on my part?

    We loved this!! We used a bag of fresh cranberries (12 oz) and added some sugar (3/4 cup since we don't like things too sweet). Excellent and easy!!

    Is the recipe calling for a bone-in turkey breast?

    I could not find turkey breasts at the store so I used turkey tenderloin. It was good but I think it needed 6 hrs on low, not 7. It was a little dry but still good.
