  • 1.5 pounds turkey tenderloin

Turkey Tenderloin Marinade

  • 1/3 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 cup low sodium soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons lime juice
  • 3 garlic cloves minced
  • 2 teaspoons brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons chipotle powder
  • 2 teaspoons dried onion flakes
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground mustard


  • Make the marinade by combinging all of the ingredients in a small bowl.
  • Put the turkey in a sealable container. Pour the marinade over the turkey tenderloin. Place the container in the refrigerator for 30 minutes or up to 24 hours.
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray a baking dish with cooking spray. Take the turkey out of the marinade and place in the baking dish, discarding the rest of the marinade.
  • Bake uncovered for 45 to 50 minutes or until the turkey registers 165 degrees. We highly recommend checking the temperature at 40 minutes as this recipe can quickly go from undercooked to over done.
