Of course noshing on the the same thing again and again no matter how you shake it up is the B-word: Boring. Oh, how I loath boring. Boring is a bore! Who wants to be boring? Nobody! That's who.
So I decided to get wild and crazy with chicken's unboring cousin: Turkey.
Right. Turkey is totally boring, too. It's not like I'm talking about quail or duck or pheasant. Just a turkey. But this recipe uses turkey cutlets. Ooooooh. Cutlets.
And turkey tastes way different than chicken. And it has it's own texture. And it's not chicken. So.....there.
No you aren't missing anything. This dish isn't exactly setting the culinary world on fiyah. Glamorous. Sexy. Food pornish. No. Not really at all. That's not what we're going for here, are we?
I can tell you it's good. And your kid will eat it. And it's fast. What more do you want from me?
If you do not have fresh rosemary or thyme just use some dried. As I often do, I cook din at 9 a.m. in the morning and the husband and kiddo heat up the grub at din din time while I work my weirdo-person hours. The turkey reheats just beautifully. It goes great with noodles, rice and of course potatoes in all forms. The last time I made it I put some buttered corn on the side because my kindergartner has a thang for corn. Yes it was frozen. But I made homemade bread that day, too, so we have that going for us.
I got this recipe on Pinterest. I love it. I made it twice and honest to goodness it works.
This is like a very organized recipe. I love lining up the cutlets on a sheet pan to season them all orderly like so:
Yeah. I said I love doing that.
And everything cooks in one pan. First the turkey:
Then the sauce:
Easy peasy. This is a great recipe for all y'all who don't like to cook. Very low stress.
