Easy Turkey Breast Cutlets
If you’re anything like me, you sometimes fall into a dinner-time rut and end up making the same boring dinners over and over! I definitely tend to use chicken as my fallback choice of protein, but did you know that turkey actually has more protein, fewer calories, and less total fat and cholesterol than chicken? These turkey Parmesan cutlets are a delicious main dish that’s packed with flavor and comes together in a snap!
How To Bake Turkey Cutlets
- Prep – Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F
- Bread Crumb Mixture – To make the cutlets, you’ll whisk together the bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, and spices in a shallow dish or plate.
- Next, you’ll dredge the turkey in the bread crumb mixture. Make sure to coat both sides.
- Brown The Cutlets – Heat the olive oil in a large sauce pan before adding in the cutlets.
- Next, you’ll brown the turkey in the pan to give it a nice crispy crust.
- After a few minutes, flip them over to brown the other side. They look delicious already!
- Bake – Once both sides are browned, the turkey cutlets will finish baking in the oven for about 20 – 25 minutes. They come out crispy on the outside, tender on the inside, and super delicious. Yum!
- Preheat the skillet before you start to brown the cutlets. If it’s not hot when you put them in, you’ll cook the turkey more than it should before going in the oven.
- Use a meat thermometer to make sure the turkey is at least 165 degrees F
