Simple Turkey Breast Cutlets Recipe
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.
Next, you’ll brown the cutlets in a little bit of olive oil to get a nice crispy crust.
After a few minutes, flip them over to brown the other side. They look delicious already!
Once both sides are browned, the cutlets will finish baking in the oven. They come out crisp on the outside, tender on the inside, and super delicious. Yum!
