Reviews for Turkey Cutlets with Cool Pepper Sauce
"Yummy and so easy and quick!!! Made the recipe exactly as is. Only difference is I cooked the cutlets closer to 8-10 minutes per side, personal preference - like meat cooked thru but not well-done. Loved the crunch of the breading along with the cool, very flavorful sauce.Thank you Jeannie"
"This was very good. I used plain yogurt in place of the sour cream. The tart with a hot bite creamy sauce went very well with the crunchy cutlet. Yum"
