Mustard-Glazed Turkey Tenderloin

While I was at the gym I was looking at a Parents magazine, and found this recipe for turkey tenderloin in an article about good nutrition. I've never made turkey tenderloins before and these were super easy and very tasty. Chad loved the mustard glaze...he was slurping it with a spoon once the turkey was gone! I made the green beans from a recipe from the magazine as well, but we didn't think it was that great of a green bean recipe.

Mustard-Glazed Turkey Tenderloin
From Parents Magazine

2 garlic cloves, minced
1 1/2 cups low-sodium chicken broth, divided
1 tsp black pepper, divided
3 tbsp whole-grain Dijon mustard, divided
1 lb. turkey tenderloin
1 tbs olive oil
1 tsp salt

Combine garlic, 1/2 cup broth, 1/2 tsp pepper and 1 tbsp mustard to ziplock bag, add turkey. Seal and marinate in the fridge for 4 to 24 hours.

Preheat oven to 375. Heat oil in an oven-safe skillet on medium-high. Cook turkey until browned on all sides; sprinkle with salt and 1/2 tsp pepper. Add 1/2 cup broth and bake for 25 minutes. Remove turkey and set on plate, cover with foil to keep warm.

Make glaze: Combine 1/2 cup broth, 2 tbsp water and 2 tbsp mustard; pour into pan. Whisk or use a wooden spoon to scrape up the browned bits and heat the glaze through. Cut turkey on a diagonal and pour on glaze.

Sounds good! The only turkey tenderloin we ever made was preseasoned and it was awful, but that was Tyson Foods fault:)
