Amazingly moist! A turkey crown is slow cooked in white wine and fresh herbs until the meat is juicy and tender. Makes Christmas dinner very easy!

This turkey crown recipe ensures that the breast meat stays moist and succulent because it's basted with plenty of butter, white wine and stock while it roasts. The juices make a wonderful gravy. Serve slices of this roast turkey breast with the usual Christmas trimmings!

By using a turkey breast crown you'll only get the breast meat on the bone which is exceptionally low in fat and cholesterol. A healthy Christmas dinner alternative!

The Elizabethans made lavish use of spices and fruits in their cooking. This turkey dish combines some typical flavours of the time in a rich, sweet stuffing that complements lean, low-fat turkey breast meat. You could add the stuffing under the skin of a turkey breast crown.

Easy to make, great for Christmas dinner (with leftovers) if you are cooking for 4 people this Christmas.

Turkey breast, gently braised to keep it moist and tender, is served with apples and plums for a special Sunday lunch, or a small Christmas dinner. Try serving with new potatoes and green beans.

Cooking a turkey breast in the slow cooker keeps it very moist and is much easier than roasting. A few tablespoons of dry soup mix seasons the turkey and creates a nice onion-flavoured gravy.

When you don't want to commit to a whole turkey, a turkey crown is a fantastic option. Here, a turkey crown is roasted with a simple variety of herbs for a delicious alternative to a typical Sunday roast. This also works a treat for a smaller Christmas centrepiece.

Roasting a turkey crown instead of a whole turkey is perfect for many of us who have smaller gatherings at Christmas. Turkey breast is also very healthy, making this a good choice!

My family have opted for a turkey crown instead of a whole roast turkey at Christmas, as it's smaller, more manageable and leaves room for lots of delicious trimmings. This is a turkey crown roasted with a simple orange marmalade glaze that's absolutely delicious!
