Indian Turkey Cutlets

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by mandabears

This is originally a recipe for outside grilling from Good Housekeeping July 2003. It works just as well inside in my broiler. Tastes like a Tandoori chicken recipe.

This was good, I would add some cut up green onion to garnish as well as cilantro with the suggested lime wedges. The flavors work well together, thank you for an easy and really good dish. (even my kids liked it!)
