Overlooked during most of the year, turkey is a natural for grilling. Here herb-marinated turkey tenderloin is served with a lemon sauce brightened by maple syrup and Dijon mustard.

Ingredients

FOR THE MARINADE, COMBINE:

FOR THE SAUCE, COOK:

Leftover turkey is a treat at Thanksgiving, so why not all year long? Have one tenderloin for dinner tonight and the other for sandwiches tomorrow!

Instructions

Preheat grill to medium. Brush grill grate with oil.

For the marinade, combine oil, parsley, oregano, pepper flakes, salt, and pepper in a large resealable plastic bag or pie dish. Add turkey and marinate 15 minutes.

For the sauce, cook bacon in a small pan over medium heat until crisp, about 5 minutes; drain on paper towels. Pour off all but 1 Tbsp. drippings. Add shallot to pan and cook until soft, about 1 minute. Deglaze pan with wine and apple juice; simmer 3 minutes. Whisk in syrup, Dijon, and lemon juice; bring sauce to a simmer.

Blend butter and flour; whisk into sauce. Simmer sauce until thickened, about 2 minutes; season with salt and pepper.

Grill turkey, covered, 8 minutes, then flip, cover, and cook to an internal temperature of 160°, 8–10 minutes more. Let turkey rest 5 minutes before slicing.

Drizzle turkey slices with sauce and sprinkle with reserved bacon and chives.

For even flavor, coat both sides of the turkey, turning meat once or twice while it's marinating.
