I was cleaning out the freezer the other day and found half a breast from Chase's spring bird, so I thought I'd make our favorite turkey dish.
Cut your turkey breast into strips about a half inch or so thick. Boil the strips until they're almost done, maybe about 10 minutes. I like to add some creole seasoning to the water before boiling.
Get a lidded container large enough to hold all the meat and pour a bottle of Sweet Baby Ray's(or your favorite) barbecue sauce in it. I add a little liquid to the sauce to thin it some. I've used beer, for tonight's batch I used some Dr Pepper.
Remove boiled meat from the water and place in the barbecue sauce. Put lid on and shake so all the meat is covered. Marinate for anywhere from 3 hours to overnight, shaking the container occasionally to make sure the meat stays covered with sauce.
After the turkey has marinated long enough, take a pound of bacon and slice it in two. Wrap a halved bacon slice around each piece of turkey, holding it in place with toothpicks and grill until bacon is done.
I come up with this a few years ago when Chase got his first bird. It's now become a family favorite and we're always fighting over the last piece!
I made this again last night with half the breast from Chase's bird and it might have been my best batch yet, even though I didn't have time to marinate it over night. I boiled the meat until almost done and added a bunch of Tony's Creole Seasoning to the water. I then poured some Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ sauce into a plastic container and added some beer to thin and more creole season. I took the turkey out piece by piece and put into the sauce making sure it got covered good. Put a lid on and shake to cover more. It then went in the fridge while I got the grill ready. I wrapped the bacon on and held with toothpics and put the bacon wrapped pieces back in the sauce, put the lid on, and gently turned upside down to cover the pieces with sauce again. It then went on the grill.
