Slow Cooked Herbed Turkey

6-8 lb turkey breast
1/4 cup butter softened
1 container garden veggie cream cheese
2T low sodium soy sauce
2T fresh minced parsley
1 tsp basil
1 tsp sage
1 tsp thyme
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 cup chicken broth

1.Pour 1/2 cup chicken broth into the bottom of a greased slow cooker. Place turkey breast on top of broth.
2.Combine butter, whipped cream cheese spread, soy sauce, parsley, basil, sage, thyme, black pepper, and garlic powder in a small bowl until smooth. Brush herb mixture over the turkey breast.On top and under the skin. 

2.Cook until turkey is tender, 4 to 6 hours on High or 8 to 10 hours on Low. Or until internal temp of 170 degrees.

* This was the most moist turkey I have ever had.Because it is cooked in the slow cooker you do not get the crispy skin look but if you want that you can transfer to a pan and broil it in the stove a few min to crisp it up. Mine just fell apart as I took it out of the slow cooker. Yummu
