Turkey Cutlets with Cider-Dijon Sauce

http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/turkey_cutlets_with_cider_dijon_sauce.html

From EatingWell:  November 1997, The EatingWell Diabetes Cookbook (2005)

This terrific recipe illustrates the basic principles of a sauté: First dredge the cutlets in flour so they brown beautifully, then cook them quickly in a hot skillet. Finally, splash one or more flavorful liquids (such as wine, broth or, here, cider) into the pan to create an instant sauce.

4 servings | Active Time: 30 minutes | Total Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Combine flour, thyme, marjoram, salt, pepper and cayenne in a shallow pan. Dredge turkey lightly in the flour mixture, shaking off excess. (Discard any leftover flour.)
  2. Heat 1 teaspoon oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add half the turkey and cook until golden outside and no longer pink inside, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate and tent with foil to keep warm. Sauté the remaining turkey in another 1 teaspoon oil; add to the previous batch.
  3. Add the remaining 1 teaspoon oil to the pan. Add shallot and cook, stirring, until softened, about 1 minute. Add cider (or juice) and mustard. Bring to a boil, scraping up any browned bits. Cook until liquid is reduced by half, about 4 minutes. Stir in any accumulated juices from the turkey. Divide turkey among 4 plates and spoon sauce over. Serve immediately.
