Recipe: Easy Grilled Teriyaki Turkey

Sharing is Caring

Spring is here and if you’re anything like me that means you’re hoping spring hunting provides more turkey in your freezer. Unlike venison and elk, there aren’t many tried-and-true wild turkey recipes shared amongst hunters, at least, not that I’ve found. I will be the first to admit that fried turkey nuggets are, arguably, one of the best ways to cook wild turkey breasts. But let’s face it, frying is time-consuming, messy, and can leave your house smelling like a state fair.

If you’re looking for an easier, slightly healthier, and just as delicious alternative, look no further than this recipe for grilled teriyaki turkey! It’s my new go-to because it’s easy to whip together on a weeknight and pleases my picky eating crowd.

  1. Mix teriyaki sauce, sesame oil, garlic, and ginger together in a large bowl.  Remove ½ cup of marinade and set aside for later use.
  2. Add tender-sized turkey pieces to the sauce mixture, cover, and let marinate for at least 30 minutes or up to 3 hours.
  3. Preheat your grill to medium-high heat. Grill turkey tenders, about 5 minutes on each side (grill time will vary depending on the thickness of each tender piece). Baste each side with reserved marinade after flipping. (Check the internal temperature at the thickest part of the tender and remove it from heat once it reaches 170°F.)
  4. Once off the grill let your turkey rest, covered with foil for 5 to 10 minutes to allow juices to redistribute. Then slice and enjoy!
