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

How to Make It

Step 1

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

Step 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.

Step 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.

This recipe is easy and the pecan bread crumb coating adds a nice tasty crunch to otherwise bland turkey.

This recipe would be good with a little more salt. Also, the breading tends to burn quickly. A lower cooking temp and more oil is needed.

I found this to be rather bland recipe; also, I think much more breadcrumbs are needed and perhaps a tad more oil. I don't think I'll make this one again -- a lot of effort for little flavor.
