For this terrific grilled turkey recipe, you need the following ingredients:

  • 4 Honeysuckle White turkey breast cutlets approximately ½” thick
  • ½ cup light soy sauce
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 6 ounces pineapple juice
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 Tablespoon ginger juice or freshly grated ginger
  • 2 – 3 cloves garlic pressed

Start by making a light marinade. It keeps the meat moist and tender. I let the meat marinate for 1-2 hours.

While the turkey is marinating, you can 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.

About 20 minutes before serving, preheat your grill to medium-high heat. Grill the turkey cutlets for approximately 5 minutes on each side until they are thoroughly cooked.

If you like teriyaki sauce, place ¾ cup 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.
