Enjoy a turkey dinner on a weeknight or for a smaller Thanksgiving party with this simple dish. Serve with mashed potatoes or egg noodles.
1 1/2 pounds turkey breast cutlets (about 8 cutlets)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/3 cup thinly sliced pancetta (about 1 ounce)
2 tablespoons thinly sliced fresh sage
3/4 cup white wine
1/2 cup fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth
2 tablespoons butter, cut into small pieces
How to Make It
Sprinkle turkey evenly with salt and pepper. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add half of turkey to pan; cook 1 minute on each side or until browned and done. Repeat procedure with remaining turkey; keep warm.
Add pancetta and sage to pan; cook 3 minutes or until pancetta is browned, stirring occasionally. Add wine; bring to a boil. Cook until reduced to 1/2 cup (about 3 minutes). Add broth; bring to a boil. Cook until reduced to about 2/3 cup (about 2 minutes). Remove pan from heat; stir in butter. Serve with turkey.
This turkey dish is good, but nothing too special. The sauce doesn't really get too thick - I wanted it to be more like a gravy or something.
