Pepper Crusted Turkey (Or Chicken) Cutlets With Chutney Sauce

Total Time

Having tried lots of different recipes through adventure, events and tag games, I now find myself with a pantry full of condiments and spices that I like but don't use very often. That has recently lead me to find new dishes which are simple, healthy and take advantage of these ingredients. This originated from a turkey recipe website and includes my modifications. Though I prefer it with turkey, it works well with chicken cutlets. Preparation includes 30 minutes to chill the poultry. This recipe is 4 pts per serving.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Crush peppercorns with a mortar with pestle or in a spice grinder until coarse. (If you have neither, place the peppercorns in a plastic ball and gently crush them with a rolling pin.) Pat peppercorns on both sides of turkey cutlets. Wrap cutlets flat in plastic wrap and chill for 30 minutes.
  2. (Note: If you are using chicken, pound to even thinness prior to crusting them with pepper. ).
  3. In large non-stick skillet, over medium heat, saute poultry in olive oil 4 to 5 minutes per side or until no longer pink in center. Remove cutlets from pan and keep warm.
  4. Combine the broth, ginger and 3 tablespoons of finely minced scallion bottoms (white and light green part) together and put into the skillet. Stir scraping the bits from the pan. Cook for just a minute.
  5. Add the chutney and brandy and cook until warmed. If you like, you can chop the mango chunks in the chutney in advance.
  6. Plate each cutlet and place one quarter of sauce on top. Garnish with a small sprinkle of chopped scallion greens (tops).

Great recipe. At home we are not great fans of pepper corns so I just crusted the chicken breasts with a mixture of crushed corn flakes and fines herbes de provence. I served them with white rice and salad. It was a huge success. Thank you for sharing this with us

Excellent recipe. Loved the chutney sauce on this. The turkey breast was nice and moist. I left out the ginger since my chutney had it included in it. Very easy to put together too. I did use a combination of butter and olive oil to saute the cutlets and used a self-grinding peppercorn medley for the peppercorns. Thanks for sharing.
