- 2 small turkey tenderloins (about 1/2 pound each)
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
- 1 cup chopped onion
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- One 4-ounce can chopped green chilies, or 1/2 cup mild giardiniera pepper-vegetable mixture, drained
- 1/2 cup coarsely chopped cilantro
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- Prepare a charcoal grill or preheat the broiler.
- Cut a pocket horizontally along the side of each tenderloin, making sure not to cut all the way through. Season with salt and pepper.
- Spray a medium skillet with non-stick pan spray. Saute the onion and garlic until softened, about 3 minutes. Stir in the green chilies and cilantro.
- Stuff the onion mixture into the pockets in the tenderloins; secure with small metal skewers or wooden toothpicks. Brush the tenderloins lightly with oil.
- Grill, covered, over medium-hot coals, or boil 6 inches from the heat source, about 8 to 10 minutes per side or until the tenderloins are cooked through. Cut on the diagonal into 1/2-inch slices.
