Chicken Fried Turkey CutletsApril 14, 2013 at 6:38 pm | Posted in Main Dish, My Own Creation, Supper, Turkey Cutlets, Uncategorized | Leave a comment
I had a package of turkey cutlets; there were only two. What to do??
I found a really cool recipe on AllRecipes and even printed it off and Pinned it but today, decided not to make it after all. I had an opened container of heavy cream that eventually was going to go bad, so I decided that rather than waste it, to dump it into the container with the cutlets and make something like a chicken fried steak, but with turkey cutlets. Here’s how it turned out!
2 turkey cutlets
Japanese panko, about 2 cups
3 tbsp. rosemary
3 tbsp. parsley
2 tbsp. salt
2 tbsp. pepper
oil for skillet
This morning, before leaving for Mass, I poured the cream into the container of cutlets.
Now, there were just two cutlets and they were pretty nice sized but I decided to get the meat tenderizer out. First, though, I sliced each cutlet into smaller pieces. Then, I tenderized each piece and returned them to the cream to sit and wait for me.
Pour the oil into the skillet; you don’t need a lot, maybe about 1/4 inch. Heat it on HIGH, until it starts to shimmer and then you can lower it to medium-high. Take a slice of turkey, let the cream drip off, then dredge it in the panko.
Cook for about 8 minutes on each side, turning carefully.
They were very delicious. Hubby said that they would also be delicious made like chicken Parmesan: topped with a nice marinara and a slice of Provolone, on a plate of spaghetti. I’ll have to keep that in mind!
