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 Cook Garlic Parmesan Turkey Cutlets

To make the cutlets, you’ll mix together a combination of bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, and spices, then dredge the turkey in the mixture, making sure to coat both sides.
