Does anyone have a good recipe for turkey cutlets that they would like to share? I have tried the Turkey Scaloppine with Porcini recipe from CL which was good but I am looking for something different. The Chipotle Turkey Cutlets recipe from CL also sounds good but I have been unable to find chipolte chili powder. Any suggestions? Thanks and I hope everyone has a nice afternoon. It's nice and sunny here in the Baltimore MD area.:)

I like this one from BA but don't know if I'd consider it "different":


"I spend as much time as I can cooking," writes Brigette Lyons of Allendale, New Jersey, "and I'm equally comfortable feeding two or two hundred. I thoroughly enjoy giving sit-down meals, including an annual Christmas luncheon I do for about twenty guests. I just like to cook, period. Cooking for two hundred may be different from making weeknight dinners for myself and my husband, John, but organization is the key to both. I try to keep things on hand that are simple and easy to prepare."

Brigette prepares this dish for her annual Christmas luncheon. It's ideal for entertaining because it can be assembled ahead and baked just before serving.

2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme or 1 teaspoon dried
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
6 1/3-inch-thick turkey cutlets (1 to 1 1/4 pounds total)
5 tablespoons butter

2 large shallots, chopped
3/4 pound fresh shiitake mushrooms, stemmed, caps thickly sliced
1 tablespoon all purpose flour
3/4 cup dry white wine
1 cup canned low-salt chicken broth
1/2 cup (packed) grated Fontina cheese (about 3 ounces)
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese (about 1 1/2 ounces)

Butter 13x9x2-inch glass baking dish. Mix first 4 ingredients in small bowl to blend. Sprinkle all of seasoning mixture over both sides of cutlets, pressing to adhere. Melt 1 tablespoon butter in large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add 3 cutlets; sauté until brown, about 1 1/2 minutes per side. Transfer to prepared dish. Melt 1 more tablespoon butter in skillet. Brown remaining cutlets; transfer to same dish.

Melt remaining 3 tablespoons butter in same skillet over medium-high heat. Add shallots and sauté 1 minute. Add mushrooms. Sauté until brown, about 6 minutes. Add 1 tablespoon flour; stir 1 minute. Add wine and boil 1 minute, whisking occasionally. Add broth and cook until sauce thickens slightly, whisking occasionally, about 3 minutes. Season sauce with salt and pepper. Pour sauce over cutlets. Sprinkle cheeses over. (Can be made 1 day ahead; cover and refrigerate.)

Preheat oven to 400°F. Bake cutlets uncovered until heated through and cheeses melt, about 10 minutes.

Makes 6 servings.

My favorite turkey cutlet recipe is my Mom's Breaded cutlets with tomato relish. Simple and fresh tasting.

1 Pound Turkey Cutlets

2 Large Eggs, Lightly Beaten

Pinch of Salt

1 1/2 Cups Bread Crumbs

4 Tablespoons Butter

1/4 Cup Olive Oil


2 Cups Cherry Tomatoes, Diced

1 Medium Stalk of Celery, Diced

4 Green Onions, Diced

10 Fresh Basil Leaves, Chopped

1 Large Garlic Clove, Minced

3 Tablespoons Olive Oil

Salt & Pepper to Taste

Dip the cutlets in the beaten eggs, and then the crumb mixture. Lightly press the crumbs into the meat. Place on a plate and refrigerate 30 minutes. In a medium bowl, combine all the topping ingredients. Set aside. In a heavy skillet, heat the butter and oil until sizzling. Cook the cutlets side by side for about 2 minutes on each side or until golden. Serve hot, topped with a few spoonfuls of the tomato topping.

Buon Appetito!

I really liked Rachael Ray's Turkey Cutlet Parmigiano with Warm, Fresh Grape Tomato Topping, Pesto, and Mozzarella. I think the recipe is posted on this board somewhere, or maybe at the Food Network website. If not, I can post if for you if you are interested.

I have been unable to find chipolte chili powder. Any suggestions?

I get my chipotle from Penzey's (http://www.penzeys.com).
