Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Combine flour and pepper in a shallow dish. Dredge turkey lightly in the flour mixture.

  • Heat oil in a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Cook turkey until the outside is slightly browned and the inside is no longer pink, about 2 minutes per side. Transfer to plates or a platter and keep warm.

  • Add garlic and scallions to the pan and saute for 1 minute. Add water, orange-juice concentrate, soy sauce and hoisin, bring to a boil, stirring. Spoon the sauce over the turkey.


Note: Hoisin sauce is a dark brown, thick, spicy-sweet sauce made from soybeans and a complex mix of spices. Look for it in the Asian section of your supermarket and in Asian markets.
