Folks will be smacking their lips when they taste these tender slices of Turkey draped a sweet and tangy sauce. "I love cooking with lemon and honey and experimenting with herbs," says Judith Harris of Brainerd, Minnesota, "This dish is so easy to make."

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons dried rosemary, crushed
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 2 turkey breast tenderloins (12 ounces each)
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon water
  • 1/8 teaspoon browning sauce, optional

Directions

  1. In a small bowl, combine the first four ingredients. Place tenderloins in an 11x7-in. baking dish coated with cooking spray. Pour half the sauce over turkey.
  2. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 40-45 minutes or until a thermometer reads 170°, basting occasionally with remaining sauce. Remove turkey to a plate and keep warm.
  3. Transfer drippings to a small saucepan. Combine cornstarch and water until smooth; stir into drippings. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 1-2 minutes or until thickened. Stir in browning sauce if desired. Serve sauce over turkey.
