Hey Everyone!! Happy New Year!! I wish you all the very best in 2016!!
I wanted to share with you a dinner that I cooked up recently that was family approved 🙂 Turkey Filet with an Onion and Mushroom Sauce. It had tons of flavor, was easy to make and was super filling! You could also substitute the turkey filet with a chicken breast or even shrimp.
I hope that you enjoy this as much as we did!!
Have a great week!

turkeyTurkey Filet with an Onion and Mushroom Sauce
• 2 Turkey Filet (I used Butterball)
• 1 medium onion, thinly sliced
• 1 package of white button mushrooms, sliced
• 2 Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
• 2 Tbsp Flour
• 1 tsp Tarragon
• 1-2 cups low sodium chicken broth
In medium skillet warm the 2 Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil over medium heat. When oil is hot, place your turkey filet into pan and sear for 3-4 minutes then flip to sear other side for another 3-4 minutes. Once turkey filet is cooked, remove from heat and place on a plate covered with foil to keep warm.
In pan drippings add the sliced onion and mushrooms. Cover and cook until tender..about 10 minutes.
Add flour to cooked onion and mushrooms and stir. Add 1 cup of chicken broth and mix well, increase heat to medium high. As onions, mushrooms, flour and broth cook it will become thick. Feel free to add more broth to desired consistency. You don’t want a heavy gravy but not watery either. Once you have the desired consistency, reduce to a simmer, add in the Tarragon and turkey filets and simmer for about 7-8 minutes to combine flavors.
Serve immediately by placing the turkey filet on plate, topped with onion and mushroom mixture. Serve with boiled sweet potato slices and asparagus for a well balanced meal!
