BBQ turkey tenders

This is a recipe that I have had for a number of years. It is a simple recipe that turns out great every time.

It is a recipe that I got from those living near the turkey farms in central Utah. It is a great way to enjoy turkey any time of year. It makes for a great BBQ and is a nice alternative to burgers and dogs. 

BBQ turkey tenders
Start with boneless, skinless, turkey tenders. With a sharp knife cut each tender into manageable 2-3 inch pieces. Marinate them in the refrigerator for a minimum of 45 minutes, or as long as 12 hours.
Quick and easy marinade for turkey or chicken

12 ounce can of a lemon/ lime soda
1 cup soy sauce
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 cup vegetable oil
mix ingredients together and pour over 2-3 pounds of  boneless skinless turkey of chicken let sit refrigerated for a minimum of 45 minutes.
When ready to cook.
Light the charcoal or preheat the gas grill. When the grill is hot, place the turkey tenders on the grates and cook over a moderate- high heat for about 6-8 minutes until the turkey is cooked all the way through. 
Serve with your favorite salad for a quick and easy summer meal.

  5. I've not heard of turkey tenders before, but since I substitute turkey for chicken quite often, I don't see why not! Thank you for sharing this at the HomeAcre Hop; I hope you'll join us again this Thursday.
