Breaded Turkey Cutlets

Often, I like to have turkey cutlets because they're low in calories. One night I tried the following recipe from and we all loved it, so I thought I'd pass it along:

1 cup Italian seasoned dry bread crumbs
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
4 turkey breast cutlets, 1/4 inch thick
1/2 cup fat free sour cream
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil

1. Mix the bread crumbs and cheese in a shallow dish. Spread both sides of turkey with sour cream and press into the bread crumb mixture to coat.

2. Heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat. Place turkey in the skillet and cook 5 to 7 minutes on each side, until lightly browned and cooked through.

Two things: I used plain fat free yogurt instead of the sour cream and I also mixed a little Dijon mustard into the yogurt per a suggestion by one of the reviewers. Oh, and a third thing: Someone suggested letting the cutlets sit a bit after breading them so the coating doesn't come off while pan frying. I did that (for about fifteen minutes) and it worked well. More info here.

This looks like a recipe I will have to try, and I am sure my husband and I will like it. I like that it sounds easy and satisfying.
Did you get the heavy snowfall predicted for your area? Have a wonderful and blessing-filled Friday, Maxine!

Laurie, we did get the snowfall, but in our particular town, it wasn't as heavy as in some others, and thankfully, while it was and is windy, it's not as bad as it could be. A little north of us it's much worse.

I make something like these too with turkey meat, my mom taught me how. I like to make them with a mushroom soup gravy. My family just loves them! Thank you for sharing! : )

I like the way that sounds Amelia. Maybe you could post your recipe for that some time.
