Probably should have posted this before Thanksgiving. I never said I was competent.

What you need

  • 1 lb slab turkey tenderloin or breast
  • Olive oil
  • 1 cup carrots, sliced
  • 1 medium yellow onion, sliced
  • 1 red bell pepper, cut into strips
  • .5 cup chicken broth
  • .5 cup marsala
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • .25 tsp rosemary
  • .5 tsp black pepper
  • .5 tbsp dried parsley

Do this

  • The night before cooking, mix broth, marsala, and spices (except parsley) in a container and plop your turkey in there. Refrigerate, flipping the turkey over periodically if the liquid does not cover it entirely
  • Preheat oven to 400 °F
  • Line a baking dish with aluminum foil. Drizzle olive oil over foil, then add vegetables
  • Place turkey on top of vegetables and pour marinade over everything
  • Sprinkle with parsley
  • Cook for ~45 minutes, until turkey reaches internal temperature of 160 °F
  • Turn broiler on high and brown for ~5 minutes

    Serve with the usual sides. I personally require cranberry sauce. If you serve me turkey without cranberry sauce, I will set fire to your kitchen.
