So moist and delicious! Chilling the breast before frying it made a difference. I used canned tomatoes and didn't have avocado but it came out wonderful. Thanks for a great recipe!

Made this for Spring PAC 2011. I used dry white wine to marinate my turkey slices for about 25 minutes and mixed bread crumbs with flour and panko crumbs (for some crunch) and the seasonings. I used the toppings and this was sooooooo easy and good! Thank you for submitting the recipe.
