2 teaspoons butter
2 cloves garlic, minced
3 cups cherries, pitted
⅓ cup orange juice
2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
¼ cup molasses
2 teaspoons tomato paste
1½ teaspoons canned chipotle peppers in adobo sauce
1 teaspoon fresh lemon zest
2 teaspoons salt, if desired
3-pounds JENNIE-O® All Natural Turkey Breast
2 yellow peppers, cut into pieces
16 small button mushrooms, cleaned
1) To small sauce pan, add butter and onions. Simmer on low heat until the onions soften, add garlic and cook 2 minutes before adding cherries, orange juice and vinegar. Simmer 5 minutes or until cherries start to soften. Add molasses, tomato paste, pepper, lemon zest and salt, if desired; stirring until blended. Allow to gently simmer 20 minutes before using your immersion blender to liquefy sauce. Allow sauce to cool before storing in a jar or applying to your turkey and vegetables.
2) Place bamboo skewers in a bowl of water until ready to use.
3) Preheat grill to medium-high heat. Place turkey on hot grill and cook until internal temperature reaches well-done, 165°F as measured by a meat thermometer. Remove turkey from grill and cut into large cubes, leaving grill on. Cut yellow peppers into large pieces. Thread turkey, yellow peppers, and mushrooms on to skewers. Cover generously with sauce. Place on hot grill and cook until peppers and mushrooms have been warmed through.
* Always cook to an internal temperature of 165°F.
