  • Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the seasoned cutlets, and fry for 2 to 3 minutes on each side, until nicely browned on the outside, but not fully cooked. Remove from the pan and set aside; keep warm.

  • Pour the orange juice and lemon juice into the pan, stirring in any bits of food that are stuck to the pan. Bring to a boil, and return the turkey to the pan. Reduce heat to medium, and cook until liquid has reduced by half, 10 to 15 minutes. Serve cutlets with sauce spooned over.

The cinnamon was an unusal flavor combination with the turkey. I'd suggest decreasing the cooking time if your turkey cutlets are thinner so that they're not too dry. I'd also suggest doubling the sauce as it reduced so much that there wasn't any sauce left over to spoon over the cutlets. Read More

Yumm!! I just made this for my family and the response was great. I followed the recipe with the exception of the amount of OJ and Lemon juice. I increased both x2 so that I would have more sauce. Glad I did as there was only a small ladlefull left after reduction. Highly recomend this recipe! Read More

I bought turkey cutlets planning to bread them but discovered I was out of bread crumbs. When I read this recipe I was a bit skeptical but had all of the ingredients. It turned out great! My whole family including my picky 12 year old loved it. I put in more orange juice than the recipe called for. My daughter dipped each bite into the sauce. I served it with mashed potatoes. It was very easy and I plan to make it again. Read More

This was surprisingly good and it reminded me of Middle Eastern food. My 5 year old liked it but I think the taste is so different most kids wouldn't go for it. For the orange juice I didn't have fresh so I put two table spoons of concentrate in enough water to make 1/2 cup and I used lime juice instead of lemon because we were out of that as well. I'll make this one again. Read More

Very nice! I opted to add a few things to spice it up a bit - namely browning up a tablespoon of minced garlic in a cap-full of EVOO instead of putting the garlic directly onto the Turkey - and- adding a tablespoon of orange marmalade when adding the OJ and Lemon Juice. All in all a very sweet-n-tasty treat! (a little salt before serving didn't hurt either!!) Read More
