Author's Notes

Great for meal prep because the longer you leave it in the fridge the richer and more flavorful it becomes, up to one week.
Cooking InstructionsHide images
step 1
Add Ground Cumin (1 Tbsp), Dried Rosemary (1 Tbsp), Dried Oregano (1 Tbsp), Dried Basil (1 Tbsp), Ground Ginger (1 tsp), Worcestershire Sauce (1 splash), Salt (to taste), Ground Black Pepper (to taste), McCormick® Garlic Powder (1 Tbsp) to the Turkey Breasts (1.1 lb), and mix using your hands until everything is well mixed. Leave in the fridge over night or for at least an hour.
step 2
First blend the Onion (1), Garlic (4 cloves), Green Bell Pepper (1) and Red Bell Pepper (1) into a smooth marinade using a food processor or hand-held blender.

step 3
Once this is done set aside and let’s get the meat browning. Heat Vegetable Oil (2 Tbsp) in a pan and then add the turkey. Because the turkey breast has very little fat you need to separate the pieces using a wooden spoon. It takes a little bit of time but its definitely worth it.
