This recipe for fast-cooking turkey cutlets bathed in a flavorful pan sauce made with sherry, shallots and cream is a mouthwatering main dish that goes from kitchen to table in no time.

Ingredients

  • 1-1/4 lbs turkey cutlets, or chicken cutlets
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 medium shallot, very finely chopped
  • 6 tablespoons medium dry sherry
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon-style mustard
  • 3 tablespoons heavy cream

Instructions

  • Place the turkey cutlets between two sheets of plastic wrap and gently pound to a thickness of 1/4-inch.
  • Combine the flour, salt, a few grinds of black pepper, onion powder and paprika on a plate. Lightly dredge the turkey cutlets in the flour mixture, shake off the excess and set aside.
  • Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Working in batches to avoid overcrowding the pan, add the cutlets in a single layer and cook until golden brown, about 1-1/2 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate and set aside.
  • Add the butter to the skillet along with the chopped shallot. Sauté for 2 minutes, then deglaze the pan with the sherry, scraping up any browned bits that may have accumulated on the bottom.
  • Allow to simmer for 1-1/2 minutes, then, working in batches, return the turkey cutlets to the pan, turning them once to glaze them lightly with the sherry and immediately transfer them back to the serving plate.
  • Add the mustard and cream to the sherry mixture and whisk until the sauce is smooth and creamy. Spoon it over the cutlets and sprinkle them with a dusting of paprika if desired. Serve immediately.
