Turkey Scallopini Recipe

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
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 20 min. YIELD:4 servings


  • 1 package (17.6 ounces) turkey breast cutlets
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 cup soft bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup butter, cubed
  • Minced fresh parsley


  • 1. Flatten turkey to 1/4-in. thickness. In a shallow bowl, combine the flour, salt and pepper. In another bowl, beat egg and water. In a third shallow bowl, combine bread crumbs and cheese.
  • 2. Dredge turkey in flour mixture, then dip in egg mixture and coat with crumbs. Let stand for 5 minutes.
  • 3. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat; cook turkey for 2-3 minutes on each side or until meat is no longer pink and coating is golden brown. Sprinkle with parsley. Yield: 4 servings.

"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!!!"
