Turkey Medallions with Tarragon and Maple/Mustard Glaze

I’m a big believer in using as few pots and pans as possible.  Nobody, and I do mean nobody, wants to work all day, come home and cook and then do a ton of dishes. There are a million other things to do like ANYTHING BUT DISHES.

This recipe is quick and easy and delicious.

Pair this with a great salad and some Pearled Couscous with Raisins, Almonds and Feta for hearty but simple weekday meal.
