TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. Cook: 30 min. YIELD:4 servings


  • 1 package (20 ounces) turkey breast tenderloins

  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1/2 pound sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1/2 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth

"This worked well for our family. I like how the mushroom sauce was an option. This way not-so-adventurous eaters got to go without it. I used thin boneless chicken breasts instead of the turkey. It was delish."
