By Chef Guy DeSerio



1 c smooth peanut butter

2 tsp sesame oil

2 tsp soy sauce

2 tsp freshly squeezed lemon juice

1/4 tsp ground ginger

1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper

2 green onions, finely chopped

2 Cloves garlic, minced

1/2 c soy sauce

1/4 c rice vinegar

2 tbsp honey

2 tsp ground coriander

1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper

1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes

2 Cloves garlic, minced

2 lbs TURKEY TENDERS, boneless, skinless & cut into 8-oz portions


Peanut Sauce

Combine broth and peanut butter; whisk to blend.

Stir in remaining ingredients and mix well. Cover and let mixture stand for, at least, 1 hour for flavors to blend. (May be stored in refrigerator for up to 2 days).

Serve peanut sauce with turkey tenders.

Turkey Marinade

Combine all marinade ingredients in a bowl or in a sealable plastic bag.

Add turkey tenders and marinate, refrigerated for several hours.


Remove tenders from marinade and discard marinade. Allow tenders to slightly drain.

Grill turkey tenders, by the indirect grilling method, until cooked through to an internal temperature of 170 degrees F, turning the tenders so all sides receive grill marks.
