Turkey Kabobs (turkey tenders)

My husbands family has these every year on the 4th of July and they are quite popular. For some reason I haven't ever been a fan of turkey, but I really like these and I have slowly been liking turkey more and more.
These are really delicious & lean, and go great with any side dish.

turkey tenders
1 c. 7-Up (I use Sprite)
1/2 vegetable oil
1/4 c. soy sauce
1/2 t. garlic powder
1/2 t. horseradish powder

Cut turkey into chunks and place in ziploc bag with remaining ingredients. Marinade overnight in the fridge. Grill over medium heat for 5-7 minutes each side, turning only once.

About the recipe:
I'll be honest, the first time I read this recipe I thought horseradish powder said worchestershire sauce, how that happened...I have NO IDEA!! So I still replace mine with 1/2-3/4 t. worchestershire sauce and we love it. So if you don't have horseradish powder, use worchestershire sauce.

The turkey tenders I found were in a package from Jennie-O and came in 3 large pieces. For the two of us I used 1 1/2 and froze the rest. The first time I cut them they were large enough to go on the grill alone, the second time they kinda fell apart so we skewered them so they wouldn't fall through on the grill. I recommend cutting them smaller for more flavorful meat. They taste great reheated as leftovers or even cold and shredded on a sandwich.
