Cajun Style Grilled Turkey Breast


I spotted some boneless turkey breasts at the market. I picked them up and headed home, not quite sure how I would prepare them. My sons requested that I seasoned them well and created Cajun Style Grilled Turkey Breast. I coated them with layers of spices and grilled them to perfection. With crispy skin and succulent turkey, they turned out great. We couldn't believe how deliciously juicy the meat was, and the seasoning was bold and tantalizing. We loved it, and I can't wait to make it again.
