Crisp breading surrounds tender turkey cutlets in this refreshing recipe from Jeannie Klugh of Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Topped with a sour-cream sauce with lively jalapeno and lemon, it has just the right kick!

  • 3 tablespoons reduced-fat sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons reduced-fat mayonnaise

"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"
