sweet and sour turkey recipe large

The following recipe is for those of you who are looking for something different. The turkey is packed with protein and the taste is awesome.


  • 4 oz skinless, boneless turkey breast

  • 2 tbsp cider vinegar

  • 1 tbsp brown sugar

  • 1/4 cup orange juice

  • ½ tsp ginger

  • 2 tbsp chopped onions

  • 1/4 clove minced garlic

  • 1/4 cup finely chopped green pepper

  • 1 tsp cornstarch

  • 1 tsp lite soy sauce

  • 1 tbsp finely chopped green onions

  • 1 mandarin

  • ½ cup rice


Cook rice according to package directions. Cook the turkey by first adding salt and pepper if you want and either pan-fry, grill, or broil it. Cook for about 12-15 minutes. In a saucepan, add vinegar, sugar, orange juice, ginger, onions, garlic, and green pepper and heat over medium heat, until onions, pepper and garlic are cooked, about 5-8 minutes.

In a small bowl, add the cornstarch and soy sauce, whisk, and add to the mixture, stirring until it is thick, about 30-40 seconds. Remove from heat and stir in the green onions. Serve over the chicken with mandarin slices and rice on the side.
