Turkey Scallopini

Quick-cooking turkey breast slices make this recipe a winner when you only have a few minutes to fix a satisfying meal. I've also used flattened boneless skinless chicken breast halves in place of the turkey of this entree. —Karen Adams, Cleveland, Tennessee

    4 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 package (17.6 ounces) turkey breast cutlets
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 cup soft bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup butter, cubed
  • Minced fresh parsley

Directions

  • Flatten turkey to 1/4-in. thickness. In a shallow bowl, combine the flour, salt and pepper. In another bowl, beat egg and water. In a third shallow bowl, combine bread crumbs and cheese.
  • Dredge turkey in flour mixture, then dip in egg mixture and coat with crumbs. Let stand for 5 minutes.
  • Melt butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat; cook turkey for 2-3 minutes on each side or until meat is no longer pink and coating is golden brown. Sprinkle with parsley.
Editor's Note
To make soft bread crumbs, tear bread into pieces and place in a food processor or blender. Cover and pulse until crumbs form. One slice of bread yields 1/2 to 3/4 cup crumbs.
