"This recipe was really delicious. I also added some cayenne pepper (as per previous comments) and reduced the amount of flour a bit to reduce clumping when the wine is added"

"My family of 4 including my children all loved it. It was a tiny bit bland and if I were to make it again, I would add more spices, but overall the turkey was tender and the sauce was delicious."

"I made this for the second time last night, and I must say it's really tasty! turkey cutlets are so soft and tender -- makes for a great cut of meat and something different than chicken or pork. I didn't really make any changes to the recipe, however, I did sprinkle a little more thyme and rosemary on the turkey once I got them in the skillet because it didn't look like enough to me. But that's a personal preference. The sauce was really good and creamy, and the paprika is a pretty touch."

"This was fantastic! I have never used turkey cutlets before, and these were great. I did add a little salt and pepper to the sauce, but it paired very well with the turkey. Paired it with "Green Bean Medley" also from healthy Cooking. Delicious! My husband was skeptical, but he loved it as well...adding it to our rotation."
