Reviews for Chipotle Citrus-Glazed Turkey Tenderloins
"Fantastic. I only found it slightly spicy, though the chipotle flavor is definitely there. Doubled the sauce, which made a little too much, but it's a great sauce to have over leftovers or another dish. Went great with Spanish rice. Mine was a little sweet, probably because I used brown sugar Splenda but didn't cut the amount in half as you're supposed to. A keeper."
"Delicious. I loved the combination of the bright citrus flavors and the spice"
"This was very tasty but a little too spicy for my kids. But I used the leftovers with Spanish rice as filler for enchiladas. That was a five star meal!"
