Smoked Turkey with Fig Balsalmic
One of my favorite easy dinners is heating up one of Diestel Family Turkey Ranch's smoked turkey thighs. My sister works there so I am very lucky to get these often! It is nice to pair the savory turkey meat with this sweet and tangy sauce!
Fig Balsamic Sauce
Prep Time: 1 minute
Cook Time: 5 minutes
Serves: 2 ( we LOVE sauces, so we have generous portions, but it could possibly serve 4)
⅛ cup balsamic vinegar
1. In a small sauce pan over medium-high heat, add the onion and olive oil. Sauté for 3 minutes or until it is translucent. Reduce the heat to medium-low and stir in the fig butter, chicken broth, and balsamic vinegar. Then, simmer over low heat for 2 minutes. Serve with the turkey thighs or even chicken!
**There are some added sugars in this product, but overall it is pretty much Paleo. If you are super-strict Paleo, you can probably make this with four really ripe figs. Add them to a food processor with 1 tablespoon honey and pulse until it is a pureé. Add that to the sauce! I would have done that initially, but there are no figs in season where I am right now.
