This is so easy and good! It originally came from an America's Test Kitchen Magazine titled 30-Minute Suppers. I have changed it a little to suit my tastes. I love how easy and fast it is to do the barley in the microwave but you could just as easily do it on the stovetop.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine the barley, 2 cups of chicken broth, and salt in a microwave-safe bowl. Cover and microwave until barley is tender and liquid is absorbed, about 10 minutes. Rinse with cold water and return to bowl.
  2. Heat 1 tablespoon of the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat until just smoking. Rinse the turkey cutlets in cold water and pat them dry. Season them with salt and pepper to taste. Cook the turkey cutlets in the heated oil until golden brown and cooked through - about 2-4 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate and tent with foil to keep warm.
  3. Deglaze the pan with the remaining 1 cup of chicken broth and bring to a boil. Whisk in the mustard and sage and cook until slightly reduced, about 3-4 minutes.
  4. Add 1/4 cup of this pan sauce to the barley along with the apple, cranberries, remaining 1 tablespoon of oil and the cider vinegar. Stir to combine and season with salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Return the turkey cutlets and any juice that accumulated on the plate to the skillet with the remaining pan sauce and simmer for about 1 minute or until the turkey is warmed through.
  6. Serve the turkey with the barley salad and pan sauce.
