This recipe for Marinated Turkey Tenderloin is super simple and full of flavor! A quick combo of a handful of ingredients and dinner is served! Perfect for an epic turkey sandwich too!
Hey there folks. If you’re having a cozy little dinner for two or four this Easter today’s Marinated Turkey Tenderloin would be the perfect option. It’s a super quick and easy recipe for a delicious marinade that’s a fabulous way to jazz up a plain old turkey tenderloin and give it loads of flavor.
When you buy turkey tenderloins at the market they usually come in vacuum-packed packages of about 1 1/2 pounds. One 1 1/2-lb. package is usually enough for Tom and I for dinner and that leaves us with enough slices for some yummy turkey sandwiches with the leftovers.
Marinated Turkey Tenderloin Ingredients
- turkey breast tenderloins
- olive oil
- apple cider vinegar
- maple syrup
- Dijon mustard
- fresh rosemary
- salt and pepper
How to Make the Marinade for the Turkey Breast Tenderloins
First, you’ll grab a small bowl and whisk together all your marinade ingredients…some olive oil, apple cider vinegar, maple syrup, Dijon mustard, minced garlic, fresh chopped rosemary and salt and pepper.
You can either add your turkey breast tenderloins to a shallow baking dish or a Ziploc bag and pour the marinade over the tenderloins, turning to coat. You will want to refrigerate for at least 4 hours for maximum flavor.
After the tenderloins have marinated long enough you will remove them from the bag or dish , discarding the leftover marinade in the bag and place the tenderloins in an oven-proof baking dish and bake at 350 degrees for roughly 35 minutes or until the meat reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees. I like to let mine sit on the counter for about 5-10 minutes before slicing.

A Few Cook’s Notes for Marinated Turkey Tenderloin
You will need to cook your tenderloins until the meat reaches an internal temperature of 165°F using a meat thermometer.
As I mentioned above, the 1 1/2-lb. package of turkey tenderloins will give you two tenderloin pieces and it can feed four people or you can feed two a main meal and use the remainder for turkey sandwiches. I love to have extra for sandwiches.
