  • “Made this tonight after apple cider brining the Turkey breast. My husband was asking me to make it again after just 2 bites.I think this would also be great with a pork loin.Thanks for posting this recipe!”

  • “Made this on the spur of the moment tonight so all my ingredients were not on hand. I had no bell pepper(didn’t miss it), my dried fruit consisted of raisens, craisens, dried cherries(will make sure to have the other assortment on hand next time).My turkey breast was boneless & skinless so I watched it closely during that initial high heat period.But it was an awesome recipe that we will use again and again.I even got a great picture of the meal to post when I get the camera connected to the computer again.”

  • “Wow! I had never made just a turkey breast before. But I was getting tired of all the leftover turkey as the kids left. This recipe was just the right blend of meat, fruit and veggies. It was wonderful! I served it with Lundberg’s rice, the dark blend. YUMMY!My husband loved it and so did our daughter. Thanks, I will make this again!”
