When it comes to the holidays people tend to stick to tradition. When you think about Thanksgiving in particular you probably instantly thing about turkey, mashed potatoes, and stuffing. They’re great staples to the holiday, but let’s face it, sometimes you just wanna switch things up a little. Especially if you’re trying to eat more healthy.
Now, I know this might sound a little crazy, turkey is pretty much sacred this time of year, but with this Sriracha Lime Slow Cooker Turkey Tenderloin your guests will be talking about the innovation and explosive flavors of your dinner for years to come! Best of all? You won’t be kicking yourself for gorging on this low-cal meal!
- 2 lb turkey tenderloins typically two per package
- 3/4 cup chicken stock, divided
- 2 Tablespoons sriracha hot sauce
- 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
- 1/4 cup honey
- 1 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 2 teaspoons salt
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
- 1 Tablespoon cornstarch
Place turkey tenderloins in the bottom of your slow cooker.
In a bowl, combine 1/2 cup chicken stock, sriracha, lime juice, honey, ginger, garlic powder, salt, and pepper and whisk together. Set aside 3/4 cup of the mixture for making the glaze.
To the remaining mixture, add an additional 1/4 cup chicken stock and pour over the turkey in the slow cooker.
Cook on low for 3-4 hours, or until the internal temperature reaches 165°F.
While the turkey finishes cooking, transfer the reserved sriracha mixture to a small saucepan and whisk in 1 Tablespoon cornstarch.
Bring to a boil and boil for a minute or two until thickened.
If desired, preheat broiler or grill. If placing in the broiler, line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Carefully remove the turkey tenderloins from the slow cooker and coat with the glaze (you may have extra that can be used for serving), and place under the broiler or on the grill for 3-4 minutes to allow glaze to caramelize.
Serve with additional glaze, if desired.
