What a lovely presentation this Italian inspired dish will make. It’s so easy and quick to make. One unusual ingredient in the sauce, vodka! Be sure to deglaze the pan with the vodka off the heat. I’ve made it skinny by using lean turkey cutlets, adding a little oil and no cream. One skinny serving has 252 calories, 4 grams of fat and 5 Weight Watchers POINTS PLUS.
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
1 pound turkey cutlets (3-4 ounces each), see shopping tip
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon fresh ground pepper
¼ cup all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
¼ cup vodka
½ cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1½ cups chopped tomato
½ cup scallions
1. Season cutlets lightly with salt and pepper then dust with a little flour on each side.
2. Coat a nonstick pan with cooking spray. Add the oil and heat over medium heat.
3. Saute cutlets approximately 3-4 minutes on each side until cooked through. Transfer the cutlets to a plate.
4. Deglaze pan with vodka away from the heat (scrapping the bottom and sides of the pan). Place the pan back on the heat and cook until nearly evaporated, about 2-3 minutes. Add the broth and lemon juice. Return the cutlets to pan and cook on each side for 1 minute. Transfer cutlets to a serving plate.
5. Stir tomatoes and scallions into sauce. Heat through.
6. Pour sauce over cutlets and serve.
Makes 4 servings (each serving, 1 cutlet)
Today many supermarkets carry packages of turkey cutlets. Trader Joe’s sells them. If you can’t find them you can use chicken or pork cutlets or cut your own, see prep tip.
To make your own turkey cutlets, start with a turkey tenderloin and cut on the bias into ½ inch thick slices.
