Grilled Italian Turkey Tenders!

This is JD, country man to the core. He shot a turkey yesterday morning for our dinner last night. It felt so "Little House On The Prairie" like. Or maybe Daniel Boone. Something, anyway it made for some good groceries! Marinated grilled Turkey tenders cooked on the grill. Fresh turkey is wonderful! For those of you who have had it, you know what I mean. For those of you who haven't, well, I'm sorry...

This is the breast meat JD got from the turkey. You can't get it any fresher!

For The Recipe:
1/2 turkey breast, bone removed and cut into tenders
1/2 bottle of Zesty Italian Salad Dressing

Note: I have no idea why this photo is turned like it is. In my folder and before downloading, it was right. Go figure.

Place the turkey breast in a plastic storage bag and add the dressing.

Thread the tenders onto skewers. This makes them easier to turn while grilling.

Heat the grill on low for five minutes and place the tenders on direct heat. Cook on first side for ten to twelve minutes. We like ours a little charred. Yes, I know that's not good for you...

Cook on the second side for another ten to twelve minutes, or until you have them like you want them. 

I served the tenders with homemade pear chutney. The sweetness of the chutney went wonderfully with the zestiness of the turkey. You could make this using chicken or turkey tenders purchased from your grocery store. Either way, this is a quick cook recipe, great for weeknights. Just put the chicken in the marinade before you leave for work in the morning and heat up the grill and you're ready to go!
