Shady Brook Farms Turkey Breast Tenderloins Cooking Instructions
These tender, juicy turkey breast tenderloins are perfect for dinner tonight. My family loves these tenderloins, and I’m always finding new ways to season and serve them.
I hope you found this step-by-step guide helpful for cooking the juiciest and most delicious turkey breast tenderloins your belly and wallet will be thankful for!
Step 1: Preheat the Oven and Prepare the Tenderloins
When it comes to preparing this delicious Shady Brook Farms turkey meat, I like to keep things simple. These tenderloins are so flavorful that you don’t need to do much to make them shine.
They are pre-marinated and pre-seasoned, so you don’t need extra work.
To start, take the tenderloins from the fridge about 30 minutes before cooking to bring them to room temperature. This will ensure even cooking. While the meat is tempering, preheat your oven to 400 °F (200 °C).
Step 2: Baking the Turkey Breast Tenderloins
As I have already mentioned, these juicy tenderloins are pre-seasoned, so you don’t really need to season them additionally.
However, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t, especially if you are like me and believe there are never too many herbs and spices.
You can add some chopped fresh or dried herbs like rosemary if you want to boost the flavor. Rub the seasoning evenly over the entire surface of the meat. For extra flavor, you can brush the tenderloins with melted butter or olive oil before sprinkling the seasoning.
Place the tenderloins on a foil-lined baking sheet and roast in the preheated oven.
To check if the turkey is done, use a meat thermometer — it should read 165 °F (75 °C). I always make a small incision in the thickest part of the meat to check that the center is white, with no pink remaining.

Step 3: Serving the Tenderloins
After about 25 minutes, check on the tenderloins and tent with foil if the tops are browning too quickly. Be careful not to overcook the meat.
The tenderloins are done when they reach the proper internal temperature and the juices run clear.
Let the tenderloins rest for 10-15 minutes, then slice and serve.
What to Serve With Turkey Breast Tenderloins?
These juicy turkey breast tenderloins are delicious on their own, but pairing them with complementary side dishes and veggies takes the meal to the next level.
A simple salad of mixed greens, cranberries, walnuts, and a light vinaigrette perfectly accompanies. The freshness balances out the richness of the turkey. You could also do an arugula salad with pears and goat cheese.
Hearty roasted root vegetables like Brussels sprouts, asparagus, broccoli, carrots, or green beans make an excellent side. Toss with olive oil, salt, and pepper and spread on a baking sheet. Roast at 400 °F (200 °C) for about 20 minutes, stirring halfway through, until tender and lightly caramelized.
My favorite side is hands down, creamy rice. It pairs beautifully with turkey tenderloins. The starchy, creamy rice highlights the savory flavor of the meat.
For a lighter option, serve the turkey over a quinoa, farro, brown rice, or barley bed. The nutty, chewy whole grains provide a perfect backdrop for the juicy tenders. You can also add dried or fresh herbs, lemon zest, or toasted nuts for extra flavor.
Lastly, homemade cornbread, biscuits, rolls, or stuffing help soak up the delicious juices. The tender, flaky pieces of bread melt in your mouth between bites of turkey.
How to Store Leftovers?
As soon as you finish your meal, refrigerate any leftovers within 2 hours. This is critical to prevent bacterial growth, which can cause foodborne illness. Place leftovers in shallow, airtight containers or ziplock bags and keep them in the fridge.
The cooked turkey meat will last 3 to 4 days when properly refrigerated. I like to enjoy leftovers for lunch or dinner the next day, then freeze any remaining turkey before it goes bad.
For longer-term storage, leftovers can be frozen for up to 3 months. Simply place portions in an airtight container, bag or wrap and freeze. When ready to eat, thaw the turkey overnight in the refrigerator. You can also add frozen turkey directly to soups or stews — just increase the cooking time.
