Fresh mandarin oranges, riesling, and orange marmalade provide the highlights for the sweet profile, while crushed red pepper adds the spicy kick to this Asian-inspired turkey dish. Serve with hot steamed rice as an accompaniment to soak up the delicious sauce. If you don't care to use the wine, substitute with 1/2 cup chicken broth and 1/4 cup additional orange juice.
