MY REVIEW

"I left the tenderloins in the pan while making the sauce - using the fresh sage, chicken broth and deli ham sliced in thin strips. Moist and good flavor."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 30, 2010

"I tried this dish last night from the 2011 Annual Recipe Book and it was delicious. I had leftover new potatoes, which I fried up in the same skillet with the turkey and I also had leftover green and red peppers and green onions. Probably not your typical fare with this dish, but my husband loved it."
