Lime Turkey Tenderloin
Turkey tenderloins are quite low in fat and are also tender when properly cooked. Serve this dish with couscous or rice to soak up the sauce.
INGREDIENTS | SERVES 4
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 2 shallots, minced
- 1 turkey tenderloin, cubed
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ⅛ teaspoon white pepper
- 2 tablespoons flour
- ½ teaspoon dried thyme leaves
- 3 tablespoons lime juice
- 1 cup apple juice
- 2 tablespoons cornstarch
- ½ cup fat-free chicken broth
Heat olive oil in large skillet over medium heat. Cook shallots for 2 to 3 minutes, stirring frequently.
Sprinkle turkey with salt, pepper, and flour. Add turkey to skillet and cook, turning to brown evenly, until tender and juices run clear when a piece is pierced, about 8 to 10 minutes.
In a small bowl combine thyme, lime juice, apple juice, cornstarch, and broth. Add to skillet; cook and stir over medium heat until thickened and bubbly, about 3 to 4 minutes. Serve immediately.
