Turkey Tenderloins with Shallot Berry Sauce Recipe

Turkey Tenderloins with Shallot Berry Sauce Recipe

This dish is SO easy to make and comes together in a snap! The original recipe called for chicken and apricot, but I switched out turkey and berry jam to use up some Thanksgiving leftovers. I was thrilled with how well it turned out. The shallot and raspberry flavors go well together.—Kendra Doss, Colorado Springs, Colorado
