Breaded Turkey Schnitzel Cutlets

Breaded Turkey Schnitzel Cutlets

Serves 4

For turkey cutlets, ask your butcher to slice turkey breast as thinly as possible, then flatten the pieces with a meat mallet. Tenderize the cutlets further at home by placing them between sheets of wax paper and pounding them lightly with a meat mallet yourself.

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten with 2 tablespoons cold water
  • 1 1/2 cups dried bread crumbs
  • 1 1/2 pounds turkey breast cutlets
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Safflower oil for frying
  • 3 lemons, cut into wedges

Transfer flour, eggs and bread crumbs to three separate wide, shallow dishes. Working with one turkey cutlet at a time, season turkey all over with salt and pepper, then dredge in flour, shaking off the excess. Next, dip cutlet in egg-water mixture and let excess drip off. Finally, dredge cutlet in bread crumbs and shake off excess. Transfer cutlets to a plate as done. Heat about 1/2 cup oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add 2 cutlets and fry, turning once, until golden brown all over and just cooked through, 2 to 4 minutes per side. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate and set aside. Repeat process with remaining cutlets, adding more oil to skillet if needed. Serve turkey cutlets warm, with lemon wedges on the side.
