Turkey cutlet pizzaiola with capers

Yield: 1 Servings

Measure Ingredient
2½ tablespoon Olive oil
3 Cloves garlic - minced; up to 4
1 pounds Turkey cutlets or medallions; thinly sliced and pounded thin
¾ cup Flour
Freshly ground pepper
Salt - to lightly season
½ cup White wine
1½ cup Coarsely chopped canned plum or Italian tomatoes; (use liquid as well)
1 tablespoon Butter
2 Cloves minced garlic; (separate)
½ teaspoon Oregano
⅛ teaspoon Basil
2 teaspoons Parsley
2 tablespoons Capers; (smaller size)

In a heavy skillet, heat the oil over medium heat and brown the minced garlic, making sure it does not burn.

Skim garlic out of pan and remove pan from heat. Meanwhile, prepare turkey cutlets or medallions and dust in flour, seasoning lightly with salt and pepper.

Brown cutlets over high heat, rapidly adding a bit more oil if necessary.

Transfer to a platter.

Remove excess fat from skillet. Add butter and second amount of garlic.

Brown garlic lightly then add, over medium heat, the white wine and chopped tomatoes. Allow to gently bubble and permit liquid to thicken slightly.

Stir in herbs and capers.Add the sauteed turkey pieces and allow to cook in sauce to absorb flavor. Turn finished dish onto warm platter, covering meat with any remaining sauce. Top with fresh sprigs of parsley.

Serving suggestion: offer with oven roasted potatoes cut in quarters, sauteed zucchini and a green salad. Serves 4.

NOTES : This dish is traditionally made with veal, but low-fat turkey cutlets work very well.
