trying to find a recipe for

years ago , ex girlfriends mother made fried turkey at holidays, it wasnt the deep fried turkeys were you cook them whole, it was sliced up and fried and just delicious does anyone here know of any recipes like this?

Jhef -

Now who said that turkey could NOT be skillet fried to begin with?

Chickens get roasted and skillet fried - so why can’t turkey?

Of course you wouldn’t skillet fry a whole turkey, but the legs, wings, and breast cutlets could easily be skillet fried!

If you really want a recipe, here’s one:

Fried Turkey Cutlets

2 cups of buttermilk.
2 teaspoons of Worcestershire sauce.
2 teaspoons of mustard.
1/2 teaspoon of cayenne.
1/2 a small onion, sliced thinly.
1 clove of garlic, sliced thinly.

1/2 lb of turkey breast cutlets.
3/4 cup of breadcrumbs.
Salt and pepper.
1/2 Gravy recipe.

Combine the buttermilk, worcestershire, mustard, and cayenne in a shallow baking dish. Stir in the onion and garlic and add the turkey cutlets, turning to coat. Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours, or overnight.

Preheat the oven to 350F. Spread the bread crumbs on a baking sheet and toast for about 5 minutes,
until lightly browned. Transfer to a plate and season with salt and pepper.

Drain the turkey cutlets and discard the marinade.

Coat the cutlets with the seasoned bread crumbs, shaking off the excess. Coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray and warm over moderately high heat.

Add one-third of the cutlets and spray them lightly.

Fry the cutlets, turning once, until cooked through and golden, about 3 minutes per side. Transfer to a platter, cover loosely with foil, and keep warm.

Wipe out the skillet and repeat with more spray and the remaining turkey. Serve hot, spooning gravy over the top. Serve perhaps with dumplings or spaetzle.

If you don’t want to use a recipe - skillet fry in olive oil (or veggie oil) with garlic, salt, pepper and parsley (this is so easy! and tasty!)

You can marinate as you would chicken as well!

Hope this helps!
