As this dish proves, turkey isn’t just for the holidays. In fact, this turkey favorite is just right any night of the week. Finished in 25 minutes, these cutlets are moist and tender. “Pecans make this entree extra-crisp and delightful,” Lisa says. —Lisa Varner, Charleston, South Carolina

"This was a great recipe and I didn't give it an excellent because my family and I think it needs a sauce. I will make it again and will figure some type of gravy/sauce for it."
