Turkey Cutlets with Lemon-Caper Sauce


From EatingWell:  March 1998, EatingWell Serves Two

Lemon, capers and parsley are a commonly grouped trio. The sauce is also good with chicken breasts, fish fillets or veal cutlets. This recipe really keeps the fat in check by using water in the skillet to keep the onions moist while sauteing.

  1. Combine flour and pepper in a shallow dish. Dredge turkey in the flour mixture. Reserve 2 teaspoons of the flour mixture.
  2. Heat oil in a medium nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the turkey and cook until browned on both sides, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate and cover with foil to keep it warm.
  3. Add onion, thyme and water to the pan. Cook, stirring often, until the onions are slightly softened, about 3 minutes. Sprinkle with the reserved flour mixture; stir to coat. Add broth and bring to a simmer, stirring constantly. Cook until the onion is softened, about 3 minutes. Add capers, lemon juice and parsley to the sauce. Return the turkey to the pan. Cook, turning once, until heated through, about 1 minute.
