TANGY MANGO TURKEY JERKY RECIPE
1 lb. skinless turkey breast
1/4 cup low-sodium soy sauce
2 Tbsp. teriyaki sauce
1 cup mango purée (1 mango mashed into a paste)
1 Tbsp. red pepper flakes
2 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
3 Tbsp. honey
Cut turkey meat into 1/8-inch strips (slice with the grain, so it doesn’t fall apart). Stir remaining ingredients together in a large bowl. Add turkey strips to marinade, and cover with plastic wrap. Refrigerate for at least 8 hours or overnight. Place turkey on a stack of paper towels to dry before cooking. Preheat oven to 170 degrees. Spray a wire rack with cooking spray. Place turkey on rack over a baking sheet. Bake for 2 hours. Turn the pieces over, and bake for an additional 2 hours. Let jerky cool and enjoy!
Pro Tip: Jerky can last a week at room temperature or 2–3 months if it is wrapped or vacuum sealed and kept in the refrigerator.
