Toasted Almond Turkey Cutlets


  • Four 3-oz. turkey cutlets
  • 1 Tbsp grated Parmesan cheese
  • ¼ tsp freshly ground pepper
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp sliced almonds
  • ½ cup low-sodium chicken broth
  • 2 Tbsp dry white wine
  • 2 garlic cloves - crushed
  • 2 Tbsp chopped basil
  • 1 tsp stick margarine
  • 1 tsp fresh lemon juice


1. On a sheet of wax paper, sprinkle the turkey on both sides with the cheese and pepper. In a large nonstick skillet, heat 1 teaspoon of the oil. Sauté the turkey until cooked through, about 4 minutes on each side. Transfer to plate.

2. In the skillet, heat the remaining teaspoon of oil. Toast the almonds, stirring constantly, until golden, about 1 minute. Transfer to a small bowl.

3. In the skillet, combine the both, wine, garlic and 2 tablespoons of water; bring to a boil.

Boil until reduced by half, about 5 minutes.

Remove from heat; stir in the almonds, basil, margarine and lemon juice. Serve the turkey topped with the sauce.
