Turkey Cutlets with Onions and Bell Peppers

Heather says:
I live near a small city, but my weekly shopping is close to home and the store doesn’t always have the same variety you can find elsewhere. I was happy to see they have begun carrying turkey cutlets. If you haven’t run across them before, they are simply turkey breasts cut across the grain into manageable portions.

Ingredients:

 

  • 2 TBSP olive oil, divided
  • 2 bell peppers cut into thin strips
  • 1 small onion sliced thinly
  • 1 cup mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 lb turkey cutlets
  • 1 cup chicken broth

 

Heat 1TBSP olive oil over medium heat in a skillet. Add the onions and garlic and cook stirring frequently until the onions are soft. Add the bell peppers and mushrooms and cook for an additional 2 – 3 minutes. Remove the vegetables from the skillet and set aside.

Add the second TBSP of olive oil to the skillet. Place the turkey cutlets in the skillet and cook for 3 – 5 minutes. Turn the turkey cutlets over and add the one cup of chicken broth to the skillet. Cover and cook for 12 – 15 minutes until or until the turkey thoroughly cooked. Use a probe thermometer (165°F) if you are unsure. Remove the turkey from the skillet and simmer until the broth’s volume has been reduced by half.

Add the vegetables back to the pan and stir.  Slice the turkey into medallions cover with the sauce and vegetables before serving.

Side dish suggestions: rice or roasted potatoes.

Enjoy

    Do you serve it that way to your children or if they do not like it do you just leave it off of theirs? My kids are sometime picky about what they eat and I usually try to put it on their plate and let them remove what they do not want to eat… others in my family say you should not do that and only give them what they will eat in order to not waste food. Sorry, this meal for use would be one of those meal where husband and I would like it and the kids would give it that weird look:)

      When I give the children a food I suspect they my not care for, I always give a “tasting” size portion. If they don’t like it only a couple bites of food are wasted.
