    Pour wine into skillet; reduce heat. Cover and simmer 30 to 40 minutes or until juice of turkey is no longer pink when centers of thickest pieces are cut. Remove turkey from skillet; keep warm.
  • 3
    Melt butter in skillet over medium-high heat. Cook onions in butter 5 minutes, stirring frequently; reduce heat to medium. Stir in brown sugar, thyme and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Cook 15 to 20 minutes, stirring occasionally, until onions are golden brown.

Expert Tips

  • Skip the wine and use 1 pound turkey breast slices instead of the tenderloins. Cook as directed in step 1-except increase cooking time to 10 to 12 minutes, turning once, until turkey is no longer pink in center. Omit step 2.
  • Any remaining turkey and onions make for a super sandwich. Top with sliced provolone or Monterey Jack cheese, romaine leaves and sliced tomatoes on your favorite hearty-grain bread.
