Thanksgiving Special Turkey Breast
Thanksgiving is just around the corner and turkey obviously has a seat reserved on my dining table. Being a thorough working woman, I highly value my holidays and am just not up for spending my day looking after it in the oven. So this is the ideal recipe for a festive Thanksgiving feast where I get to enjoy my day-off while my kitchen assistant, Crock pot, cooks the turkey for my food loving family. Lemon and paprika gives it a thrilling kick as I use the breast piece to make the serving stage easier. You can obviously use a whole turkey to make the traditional Thanksgiving main course.
