"Very tasty. I was debating on using chicken breast which I had on hand or splurge on the turkey tenderloin. Glad I splurged although I think this was be just as good with chicken or pork tenderloin. I broiled the turkey instead of grilling since the weather is getting cooler here in PA and it was good. Grilling would add even more flavor I guess. I really liked the broccoli slaw and plan on making that as a side for other dishes. Thanks for sharing Mary Ann (fellow PA resident)."

"We had never grilled turkey before and it was amazing! The slaw itself needs a little "something" - maybe some chopped onion??"

"To: talbotsgirl... Yes, you could bake these. But you can also use a skillet like you would for eggs! If you have a good non stick one it will be even better... I use my scanpans... love them!"
