Herbed Turkey Breast Tenderloins
Herbs add surprising dimension to this tender turkey breast recipe shared by Denise Goedeken of Platte Center, Nebraska. It's easy for a weeknight meal but fancy enough for company, and just as the name suggests, it's oh-so quick to fix.
Total TimePrep/Total Time: 15 min.
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
- 1/4 teaspoon dried rosemary, crushed
- 1/8 teaspoon paprika
- Dash garlic powder
- 1 turkey breast tenderloin (3/4 pound)
- In a small microwave-safe bowl, combine the first five ingredients. Cover and microwave on high for 45 seconds or until butter is melted.
