Did you say turkey cutlets? Hmmmm, what can I do with them?

Tonight I was really tight on time for some reason.  Not sure exactly why?   Could have been the fact that I have been without a voice since Tuesday and am just worn out, or it could be that I have been flat out getting things ready for the week away?  Any way,  dinner tonight actually came out delicious!  Are you ready? It is called Turkey Scallopini with Capers and Lemon....


For four people, I used one package of turkey cutlets.  I dried them off and dredged them in a mixture of flour, salt and pepper, and paprika.


I then lightly browned each one in a pan that had a small amount of olive oil and butter. When they were done, I put them in a holding dish.  At this point, using the same pan I cooked the turkey cutlets in, I cooked 1 shallot, chopped up.  I then added the capers, a cup of chicken broth, some parsley, salt and pepper,  and lemon juice to the pan.  I let this cook down to about half of the original amount of sauce.  While all of this is going on, I cook about half of a box of wheat angel hair pasta.  When it was done, I drained it and mixed in some herb salad dressing that I had made and had left over.

So....all that is left is putting it all together.... I grabbed some angel hair pasta, and placed a turkey cutlet  on top with a little of the lemon caper sauce and sprinkled with some shaved parm cheese...
Well, folks, I am off for a week of fun in the sun in beautiful Provincetown, MA.  See you when I get back!
