This recipe inspired in part or in whole from here


  1. I made this the other day, delicious. Only thing I would have done differently is to allow the sauce to cook down a bit more before adding the turkey.

  2. Great recipe. I subbed chicken for the turkey, added a baked sweet potato and spinach salad as sides. I will be making this again.

  3. This wasn’t my favorite, but I may have just overdone the salt and tarragon. I tried with a whole apple as another user suggested, and it was more of a slush than a sauce. Next time I’ll go easier on the spices and take the extra step of straining out the apple pulp.

  4. I let the sauce simmer down a little further after turkey was done and added a large dollop of coconut milk i had left over in fridge. Gave sauce an extra dimension and more like a curry sauce rather than being soupy!

  5. Omg this was the best dish ever! I did chicken instead of turkey, and so far it has been my fav chicken dish to make. I don’t have tarragon so I used basil & sage instead, which I don’t even know if that’s a good substitute as Ive never had tarragon before, but it was in the fridge & it ended up tasting delicious with the apple juice & chicken stock!! I cooked the sauce a little longer after the chicken was done until it literally turned into a glaze. My bf & I literally ate the leftovers that was supposed to be our lunch because it was that good!!!

  6. Ok…so I was too lazy to get out my juicer for one apple so I used applesauce. Not a good idea…if you’re tempted…don’t do it!! It was thick and weird. The taste was all right…I’m not a fan of ginger so I should have left it out but it’s so darn healthy! Anyway…overall it was good. I’ll try again with apple juice and without ginger another day.
