This recipe for Grilled Teriyaki Turkey is delicious, light, and refreshing. Serve with pineapple and slaw to complete the meal.
I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Honeysuckle White. I received complimentary products to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.It’s that time of year – BBQ season. This year, I have added a new treat to my grilling line up – Terikayi Turkey.
I start by using Honeysuckle White turkey breast cutlets.
Next, I make a light marinade. It keeps the meat moist and tender. I let the meat marinate for 1-2 hours. While the turkey is marinating, I make a simple Asian Ginger Coleslaw to complement the meat. (To simplify side dish prep time, a bag of pre-cut coleslaw mix + a bottle of pre-made Asian Coleslaw dressing = more time to enjoy with friends and family.) Cubes of pineapple round out this simple and delicious meal.
If you like teriyaki sauce, place 3/4 cups of the reserved marinade in a small saucepan and heat over medium-high heat. Blend 1 tablespoon of cornstarch with 1 tablespoon of cold water. Mix until there are no lumps. Add the cornstarch mixture to the heated marinade and stir until thickened.
