How To Cook Turkey Tenderloin Recipe

Wondering What Turkey Tenderloins Are? Look no further,
Turkey tenderloins are the boneless, skinless part of the turkey breast. A tenderloin is a thick strip of meat cut from between the turkey's breasts. The meat is particularly tender because that part of the turkey doesn't get much of a workout.
Though similar, turkey tenderloin and turkey breast are not the same. Turkey tenderloin comes from the meat between the turkey breasts, so it tends to be smaller and more tender than turkey breast.
