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. —Brenda Sabot-Lion, Warren, Pennsylvania

"This turned out great! The only thing I would change would be to add more apple slices. Served it with mashed butternut squash and it made a super easy fall dinner."

"I also used cutlets because I can't find a tenderloin. The sauce was very mild, even a little boring. I added about 1.5 tsp of apple cider vinegar to give it some brightness. DD gave it 3 stars, DH gave 4 as did I. It is not going to be a staple recipe but I definitely will make again."

"I love this recipe. The only problem is I can't find turkey breast tenderloin where I live. I have made it twice with turkey cutlets, but even these are seldom seen at the grocery store. I might have to try chicken next time."
