Lemon Honey Turkey

Recipe number 2 is a success too! It is so nice to add new foods to our menu. I get sick of eating the same stuff over and over again.

Sorry there isn't a picture. Dinner time was a little hectic last night.

Lemon Honey Turkey

1/4 c honey
1/3 c lemon juice
1/2 tsp rosemary (I used parsley since I didn't have any rosemary)
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
1 lb turkey breast fillets or tenderloins
1 tsp cornstarch
1 tsp water

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Combine honey, lemon juice, rosemary, and red pepper flakes. I heated the honey slightly to make it easier to mix together.

Put turkey into small baking dish and pour half the sauce over. Bake for 40-45 minutes occasionally basting with remaining sauce. Cook until turkey it done through.

Combine water and cornstarch until smooth. Pour sauce from baking dish into small saucepan and add cornstarch mixture. Bring to a boil and boil for 1-2 minutes until thickened. Serve sauce alongside turkey.

Another yummy and healthy dinner!
