30-Minute Baked Barbecue Turkey Tenderloins Recipe Is Unique

With Thanksgiving coming up and Christmas just around the corner, you may be thinking about your dinner plans. If you’re hosting, you may already be thinking about what you’re going to serve.

Do you dread the hours it takes to roast a whole turkey? Well, it feels overwhelming to me, between the sheer amount of time it takes and trying to time everything else, too. But you don’t need to stress about it! There’s no rule that says anyone has to roast a whole turkey. There are less stressful options.

This oven-roasted turkey recipe with barbecue sauce offers a unique twist on holiday dinner – or even weeknight dinners. Your guests (or just family) will be thrilled with a delicious, unique, lighter meal (more room for dessert!) and you’ll be relieved to have a less stressful option so that you can enjoy the holiday, too.
