  1. Preheat oven to 350° F.
  2. Combine the salt, pepper, garlic, rosemary and thyme in a small bowl and sprinkle on all sides of the turkey tenderloins.
  3. Heat an oven-safe, non-stick sauté pan over medium-high heat. Once heated, add olive oil and swirl to lightly cover the bottom of the pan. Place the turkey tenderloins into the hot pan and sear for about 2 minutes on each side or until browned. Once seared, remove tenderloins from the pan, place into tray or container and set aside.
  4. Add the onions to the same hot pan and sauté for 4-5 minutes or until soft and they begin to caramelize. Season with salt and pepper and stir. Add the chicken stock, vinegar and apples to the pan. Stir and continue to sweat the onion/apple compote for about 3-5 minutes on medium heat until the liquid begins to reduce and apple begins to soften.
  5. Add Welch's 100% grape juice to the onion/apple compote. Allow to come to a boil and remove from heat. Place reserved turkey tenderloins on top of the compote. Place pan in the oven and continue to roast tenderloin uncovered for about 25-30 minutes until the turkey is no longer pink in the middle and reaches an internal temperature of 160 degrees F. The onion-apple compote will be soft and the liquid reduced by at least half.
  6. Remove pan from the oven and place the tenderloins on a cutting board. Allow the meat to rest for about 5 minutes before slicing. Slice tenderloin diagonally and serve with onion-apple compote.
