Preparation of this entrée is very fast paced, so have your side dishes ready before you begin cooking it. Mixed salad greens topped with Cider Vinaigrette and Rice and Vegetable Pilaf make good accompaniments.

• 2 tablespoons water
• 1-1/2 teaspoons fresh tarragon leaves or 1⁄2 teaspoon dried, crumbled

• 1-pound turkey tenderloin, all visible fat discarded
• Vegetable oil spray
• 2 teaspoons olive oil
Serves 4
(3 ounces turkey per serving)
To Prepare:
In a small bowl, whisk together the sauce ingredients. Set aside.
Cut the turkey crosswise into 1/4-inch slices.
Lightly spray a large nonstick skillet with vegetable oil spray. Heat over high heat. Add the oil and swirl to coat the bottom. Cook the turkey slices in a single layer for 2 minutes. Turn the turkey and cook for 3 minutes, or until no longer pink in the center. Transfer the turkey to a serving plate.
Pour the sauce mixture into the skillet. Cook for 15 to 20 seconds, or until the mixture reducesto 2tablespoons, stirring constantly with a flat spatula.
To serve, drizzle the sauce over the turkey.
