Broiled Turkey Tenderloins
This recipe is perfect for weekday meals or special dinners with my grandchildren. The simple sauce gets its tang from citrus, a little kick from cayenne and subtle sweetness from molasses. It keeps well in the refrigerator, so it can be made ahead. I often fix extra to use later with other meats.—Jean Komlos, Plymouth, Michigan
