MY REVIEW

We had the cutlets last night they were excellent will have them again. They are going in my favorites list.

MY REVIEW

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 REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 14, 2011

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.

Excellent. Very flavorful. I make exactly as recipe called for but I did add a pinch of cayenne for a little spice.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 29, 2010

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.
