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.Grilled Teriyaki TurkeyIt’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.

Marinating Turkey

About 20 minutes before I want to serve my guests, I preheat my grill to medium-high heat.  I grill the turkey cutlets for approximately 5 minutes on each side until they are thoroughly cooked.

On the Grill

If you like teriyaki sauce, place 3/4 cups of the reserved marinade in a small sauce pan 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.

I have never heard of Honeysucle White before but I love that they tell you who their farmers are. I'm going to research this company a little more closely. I'm all about supporting companies committed to providing healthy foods. That recipe sounds delicious!

Looks so yummy! I love that you added pineapple as a side. This would be a great alternative to chicken cutlets that my kids always eat

Yum, yum, and more yum! I love teriyaki but haven't tried it on my turkey. This sounds like our next weekend BBQ.
