Southern Living


1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 pound turkey cutlets
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/4 cup olive oil, divided
1/4 cup loosely packed fresh sage leaves
1/2 large shallot, sliced
1/2 cup dry white wine
1 cup chicken broth
2 medium tomatoes, seeded and diced
1/4 cup heavy cream
1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
8 ounces hot cooked thin spaghetti


1. Stir together flour and cornstarch in a shallow dish. Sprinkle turkey with salt and pepper. Dredge turkey in flour mixture, shaking off excess.

2. Cook turkey in 2 Tbsp. hot oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat 2 to 3 minutes on each side or until golden. Drain on paper towels.

3. Heat remaining 2 Tbsp. oil in skillet; add sage. Cook, stirring often, 2 to 3 minutes or until crisp and fragrant. Remove with a slotted spoon; drain on paper towels. Add shallots, and sauté 2 to 3 minutes or until tender. Add wine, and cook 3 to 4 minutes or until mixture is reduced by half, stirring to loosen brown bits from bottom of skillet. Add broth, next 2 ingredients, and turkey. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat; reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer 10 minutes or until mixture is thickened. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Serve over pasta; top with crispy sage leaves.
