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

  • 4 turkey breast tenderloins (12 ounces each)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/4 cup chicken broth
  • SAUCE:
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 5 shallots, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons seedless raspberry jam


  1. Sprinkle turkey with salt and pepper. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat; brown tenderloins in batches. Cook, covered, until a thermometer inserted in pork reads 165°, 8-10 minutes longer. Remove from pan; keep warm.
  2. Add broth to skillet; increase heat to medium-high. Cook, stirring to loosen browned bits from pan; remove from heat.
  3. Meanwhile, in another skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add shallots, salt and pepper; cook and stir until shallots are tender. Add broth, stirring to loosen browned bits from pan. Stir in vinegar and jam. Bring to a boil; cook until slightly thickened, 4-5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  4. Slice tenderloins; drizzle with pan juices. Serve with berry sauce.
