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.
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.
