I made this recipe for my parents tonight, and it received rave reviews! My Dad had two portions of turkey, and declared that it was “exceptional”. I have to agree, I thought it was pretty tasty myself. This is a great weeknight meal, that comes together quickly, but tastes like you spent some time preparing it. I served it with lemon wedges on the side, and it complemented the turkey perfectly. I loved the crunch of the parmesan crust, while the turkey was moist and flavorful.
Turkey Cutlets with Parmesan Crust
8 (4 oz) turkey breast cutlets
4 egg whites, beaten
3/4 cup seasoned bread crumbs
1/3 cup parmesan cheese
salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons butter
2 teaspoons olive oil
lemon wedges for serving
Heat oven to 250 degrees. Season turkey cutlets with salt and pepper. Combine bread crumbs and parmesan cheese in a bowl. In another bowl, beat egg whites. Dip turkey cutlets in egg whites, and then in bread crumb mixture and shake off excess.
Heat a large non-stick frying pan on medium heat, and add half of the olive oil and half of the butter. When butter melts, add 4 cutlets and cook a few minutes on each side, until golden brown and cooked through.
Set aside on a baking sheet and keep warm in oven. Add remaining butter and oil to pan, and cook the rest of the cutlets. Serve with lemon wedges.
