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: 30 min. YIELD:4 servings


  • 1/3 cup apricot spreadable fruit
  • 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon honey

  • 1/2 teaspoon grated lemon peel
  • 1/8 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
  • 2 turkey breast tenderloins (8 ounces each)
