Quick-cooking turkey breast slices make this recipe a winner when you only have a few minutes to fix a satisfying meal. I've also used flattened boneless skinless chicken breast halves in place of the turkey of this entree. —Karen Adams, Cleveland, Tennessee

"Delicious! I used panko bread crumbs instead of the soft bread crumbs, made it nice and crunchy."

"This was really fast and tasty. I used chicken and panko bread crumbs since that's what I had on hand. We had it with mashed potatoes and turkey gravy, and it was a very satisfying meal!"

"This was excellent. The only thing that would have made it better was a little lemon juice. We minimize fat and calories, we eliminated some of the butter."

"This is something my entire family loved!!! Once my husband & I got together, due to my preference we no longer have pork chops in our home. For him and both children, it was something they truly missed, so I began to search for a way to make a substitute. This was amazing!!! We are definitely going to add this into our rotation cycle!!!"
