Breaded Turkey Breasts

A tasty crumb coating seasoned with Parmesan cheese and Italian herbs gives the turkey slices a delicious flavor. The thin turkey slices take just a few minutes on the stovetop, so be careful not to overcook them. —Rhonda Knight, Hecker, Illinois

    Simple to make with no waste. I halved the quantity of breadcrumbs and it was the perfect amount for the turkey I had. I used very little rice milk too, just covered the base of a flat bowl. For half of the turkey I added a sprinkle of cayenne (I like spicy), which was nice. Recommend eating with a dip of mayo mixed with cayenne, spicy paprika and a little salt and pepper.

    Great taste! Would also work well with boneless chicken breast or thin cut pork chops.
