Whether you’re taking your family camping or hosting a BBQ at your house, you’ll want to have this Marinated Turkey BBQ recipe on hand.
Our family loves this recipe! Birthdays, family BBQs, graduations and camping — Chances are pretty high we have Marinated Turkey Tenders on the menu.
The recipe calls for turkey tenders or turkey tenderloin, which is a boneless, skinless cut of breast meat under a turkey breast. It’s a low-fat cut and super easy to prepare, but not always easy to find. Ask your local butcher if it’s available, either fresh or frozen. You can always substitute a skinless chicken breast, but you won’t regret the extra effort to find the turkey tender. If you have a friendly butcher, you may ask him/her to trim the center tendon from the tenderloin.
To take camping, marinate your turkey in a zip-top bag or large, snap-tight plastic container. The turkey grills up easily on grate over a fire or on a hot dog stick for 8-10 minutes per side. Check to see that it’s cooked thoroughly. We bring some bamboo skewers and transfer the cooked turkey to make turkey popsicles. The turkey tears apart easily so a knife is optional.
