- 1 lb Ontario turkey cutlets/scaloppini
- 1/2 tsp salt, divided
- 1/2 tsp cracked black pepper, divided
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 1 shallot, minced
- 2 cups chopped mixed mushrooms, such as shiitakes, cremini, oyster and portobello
- 1/2 cup white wine*
- 1/2 cup chicken broth
- 1/2 cup flat leaf parsley, minced
Preheat oven to 275 F (140 C).
Season turkey with 1/4 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp pepper. In large, heavy skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. In batches, brown cutlets on both sides until just cooked through, about 3 minutes per side. Transfer to plate and keep warm in oven while making sauce.
In same skillet, cook garlic and shallots until softened and tender, about 3 minutes. Stir in mushrooms and remaining salt and pepper, cook until mushrooms are golden brown and no liquid remains, about 5 minutes. Pour in wine and stir often, until reduced by half; add chicken broth and parsley. Cook until slightly thickened, about 3 minutes.
To serve, spoon sauce over cutlets.
Makes 4 servings.
