I went to the store the other day and tried to find a Jennie-O branded marinated turkey to review as a requirement for a part-time job, that I can't disclose. Nobody knew I was going to review this, not them, not my husband and neither did I until I tasted it. ;)
I haven't tried any store-bought marinated thing ever. I usually do it myself or if not, my husband. And this was all new to me, I haven't eaten turkey, again, ever. Not even during Thanksgiving.
So, the only available flavor at the store is Applewood Smoke. There are more flavors, I believe. It was already marinated so I didn't try to change the taste and put some other kind of sauce. I didn't add anything. It was in the frige section, hence, I was able to bake it in the oven at 375F for 30mins as soon as I arrived home.
The turkey breast tenderloin was not as bad as I expected. It smelled delicious, even after opening and while cooking. There's this certain aroma that will lure you to try it, must be the applewood scent. At first I thought it was a bit dry because I love sauces. But after tasting, it was just right. I wish I knew the perfect side dish for this. I wish maybe they can put a note on the package - "suggested serving".
Anyway, the picture you'll see below is the exact thing I served to my 2-year old. She is a very picky eater but she loves chicken. I told her that was chicken and she ate it! (It tasted somewhat like chicken anyway with a more stronger smell.) She of course was not able to finish everything because the portion was too big. I placed her leftovers in the fridge and she asked it for lunch, just awhile ago.
By the way, there are two pieces of turkey tenderloins in one pack. It is indeed good for two people or three if you have a toddler. :)
Because of that, I am very glad I tried this. It caused me no hassle to prepare, just toss in the oven! And the most important thing is, my daughter liked it!
