Autumn Turkey Tenderloins

This out-of-the-ordinary meal is perfect for cool nights with family, friends or company. With cinnamon and brown sugar, it's slightly sweet, and the toasted walnuts add a wonderful toasty-nutty crunch.


5 servings


1 1/4 pounds turkey breast tenderloins
1 tablespoon butter
1 cup unsweetened apple juice
1 medium apple, sliced
1 tablespoon brown sugar
2 teaspoons chicken bouillon granules
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 tablespoon cornstarch
2 tablespoons cold water
1/2 cup chopped walnuts, toasted


In a large skillet, brown turkey in butter. Add the apple juice, apple, brown sugar, bouillon, cinnamon and nutmeg. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 10 to 12 minutes or until a meat thermometer reads 170°F (77°C).

Using a slotted spoon, remove turkey and apple slices to a serving platter; keep warm. Combine cornstarch and water until smooth; stir into pan juices. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Spoon over turkey and apple. Sprinkle with walnuts.
