Balsamic Turkey and Peppers

Balsamic Turkey and Peppers

Turkey tenderloins are a tender strip of white meat under a turkey’s breast.  This part of the turkey is my favorite, as it is tender and delicious and low in calories.  If you can’t find turkey tenderloins, turkey breast, cut into cutlets, will also work well for this delicious and healthy recipe. ~Katie
