WOW !! A really old posting -- 4 digits ! Had marinated turkey breast filets from Costco, which had been grilled. Had sufficient left over to have another meal -- but needed some moisture. This was a great sauce -- I think I overdid the lemon juice (my fault, not yours) - but very flavorful as sauce/gravy to nuke for dinner. Served with Israeli coucous and peas for a most pleasant meal. Still have a tad left over -(just 2 0f us) - Thanks for a tasty addition for dinner.

Thank you so much for the recipe...today in the "Request A Recipe" discussion, I requested this recipe before I searched Zaar... I hadn't rec'd any responses so I did the search and voila... exactly what I was looking for. I rated 4 stars as I haven't made the sauce yet but it certainly looks right on the money. Thanks!
