Grilled Tarragon Mustard Turkey

Total Time

Prep: 25 min. + marinating Cook: 20 min.


2 servings

I adapted a chicken recipe for turkey breasts instead. It quickly became one of my husband's favorites for the grill.


  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 turkey breast tenderloin (1/2 pound)
  • 4-1/2 teaspoons tarragon vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons dry white wine or chicken broth
  • 1 teaspoon dried tarragon
  • 1/4 cup butter, cubed
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard


  1. In a resealable plastic bag, combine the lemon juice, oil and pepper; add turkey. Seal bag and turn to coat; refrigerate for up to 2 hours.
  2. In a small saucepan, combine the vinegar, wine or broth and tarragon. Bring to a boil; cook until reduced by half. Reduce heat; add butter and mustard. Stir until butter is melted; set aside and keep warm.
  3. Drain and discard marinade. Grill turkey, uncovered, over medium heat for 5 minutes; turn and baste with mustard sauce. Cook 10-15 minutes longer or until juices run clear, basting frequently.
