Panko Crusted Turkey Cutlets With Cajun Spiced Sauce
You can make this with boneless chicken breast, but turkey is a nice change.
6 boneless turkey breasts cut thin and pounded
1 cup flour
3 cup panko crumbs
1 ½ teaspoon garlic powder
1 ½ onion powder
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon thyme
1 teaspoon oregano
1 ½ teaspoon sea salt
½ teaspoon pepper
½ cup vegetable oil
Preheat oven to 300 degrees
In a small bowl combine garlic and onion powder, thyme, oregano, paprika, sea salt and pepper.
In a medium size bowl, whisk eggs with 4 tablespoons of water and add 2 teaspoon of spice mixture.
In another medium size bowl add Panko crumbs and toss with the remaining spice blend.
Wash and pat dry turkey breast, dredge in flour. Dip each breast into egg wash and then Panko crumb mixture.
Place on baking sheet lined with parchment paper. You can now store breaded turkey breast in refrigerator for several hours and pan fry when ready to serve or pan fry immediately.
Heat large sauté pan with oil that completely coats pan and is ½ inch thick. Once oil is heated add turkey breasts and fry each side about 5 – 6 minutes until it is a golden brown.
Place turkey on a baking sheet lined with a wire rack. Repeat until all turkey is done.
Serve immediately or place in heated oven until ready to serv.
¼ cup Mayonnaise
¼ cup non fat Greek yogurt
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon chili powder
½ teaspoon sea salt
¼ teaspoon fresh ground pepper
