Zesty Apricot Turkey Recipe

Zesty Apricot Turkey Recipe

Grilled turkey from Wendy Moylan of Crystal Lake, Illinois is bound to be the centerpiece of any picnic. The poultry's fruity coating gets a little kick from hot pepper sauce...and would be a nice complement to other meats, too. This entree is so easy, you'll be munching in the sunshine in no time.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 20 min. YIELD:4 servings


  • 1/3 cup reduced-sugar apricot preserves
  • 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated lemon peel
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/8 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
  • 1 boneless skinless turkey breast half (1 pound)


  • 1. In a microwave-safe dish, combine the first six ingredients. Microwave, uncovered, until the preserves are melted, about 1-2 minutes on high. Stir to blend. Set aside half to serve with turkey.
  • 2. Prepare grill for indirect heat. Grill turkey, covered, over indirect medium heat for 3 minutes on each side. Baste with 1 tablespoon reserved apricot sauce. Grill 7-10 minutes longer or a meat thermometer reads 170°. Slice; serve with the reserved apricot sauce. Yield: 4 servings.
