  • 4 turkey breast cutlets (1 pound)
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 tablespoons olive or canola oil
  • 4 ounces mushrooms, sliced
  • 3/4 cup chicken stock
  • 1/4 cup vermouth or chicken stock
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons low-fat sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons minced parsley

    How to make it  25 minutes

  • 1

    Place 1 turkey cutlet between 2 sheets of wax paper. With a rolling pin, pound the cutlet lightly to flatten it; repeat with the others.

  • 2

    Spread flour on a plate and season with a pinch each of salt and pepper. Dredge the cutlets with the flour, patting the flour into both sides of the cutlets.

  • 3

    In a nonstick skillet, heat the oil. Over moderate heat, sauté 2 cutlets at a time, about 2 minutes on each side, until golden and cooked through.

  • 4

    Transfer the cutlets to a platter, cover with aluminum foil, and keep warm. Remove the skillet from the heat and spoon off all but 1 tablespoon of the oil.

  • 5

    Sauté the mushrooms about 1 minute. Add the 3/4 cup stock and simmer 2 to 3 minutes. In a bowl, blend vermouth or stock with cornstarch; add to skillet and simmer, stirring.

    When the sauce is thickened, remove the skillet from the heat and stir in the sour cream and parsley until blended. Season with pepper. Pour the sauce over the cutlets.
