Not just for Thanksgiving, turkey breasts can be sliced into thick steaks — ideal for grilling. The fast heat keeps them moist, and you’ll have a low-cal entrée ready in less than 20 minutes.

If you have more time to prepare, place one unsliced, skinless boneless turkey breast in a large plastic bag. Pour in entire amount of marinade called for in this recipe. Push turkey into marinade and seal bag. Place bag in a bowl and refrigerate overnight. Remove turkey from bag and discard marinade. Slice and grill as above or cook turkey breast whole, turning occasionally, from 30 to 40 minutes. Cut into thick slices and serve immediately.
