Yield Makes 4 servings
Try these turkey cutlets that are breaded with an earthy pecan mixture for something delicously different. Substitute chicken cutlets for turkey if desired.

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup fine, dry breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 cup pecans
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 (1-lb.) package boneless turkey cutlets
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • Garnish: chopped fresh parsley

How to Make It

  1. Process breadcrumbs and pecans in a food processor or blender 10 to 15 seconds or until finely ground.

  2. Sprinkle 1/2 tsp. salt and 1/2 tsp. pepper over cutlets. Combine flour and remaining salt and pepper in a shallow dish or pie plate. Dredge turkey cutlets in flour mixture; dip in eggs, and dredge in breadcrumb mixture.

  3. Sauté cutlets in hot oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat 3 minutes on each side or until golden. Remove from skillet, and serve immediately. Garnish, if desired.
