Recipe by Mommy Diva
Another nice looking recipe I'd like to try from TOH's Simple and Delicious. This recipe is the starter for the turkey portion of another recipe - Buffalo Turkey with Linguini (also from TOH's Simple and Delicious). I love finding recipes that springboard eachother to speed up your week's menu!!! ***Yield is listed as 4 servings PLUS 16 oz. of cooked turkey breast tenderloins to be used eitehr in the Buffalo Turkey Linguini or any other recipe you see fit.

***MADE FOR COOKATHON FOR MOMMY DIVA JAN. 2012*** If I could give this more stars I would. This was soooooo darn good. I made the recipe as posted. I paired this with garlic and dill mashed potatoes. And the whole meal was delicious. Now, I can't wait to try the second recipe that goes with this. Thanks Mommy Diva for this recipe. And hoping for a speedy recovery for you.
