Skinny Turkey Pomodoro
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 and 4 grams of fat.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound turkey cutlets (3-4 ounces each), see shopping tip
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon fresh ground pepper
  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • Cooking spray
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • ¼ cup vodka
  • ½ cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • cups chopped tomato
  • ½ cup scallions

Instructions

  • Season cutlets lightly with salt and pepper then dust with a little flour on each side.
  • Coat a nonstick pan with cooking spray.  Add the oil and heat over medium heat.
  • Saute cutlets approximately 3-4 minutes on each side until cooked through.  Transfer the cutlets to a plate.
  • 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.
  • Stir tomatoes and scallions into sauce.  Heat through.
  • Pour sauce over cutlets and serve.

Notes

Makes 4 servings (each serving, 1 cutlet)

Shopping Tip

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.

Prep Tip

To make your own turkey cutlets, start with a turkey tenderloin and cut on the bias into ½ inch thick slices.
