Pomegranate Sauced Turkey Cutlets

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by justcallmetoni

Inspired by a recipe in Eating Well magazine, this quick dish is rather sumptuous in flavor. The original recipe suggested serving this with roasted fennel but I thought it worked better with roasted asparagus. Betting this would also work well with thinly sliced or pounded chicken breasts.

This was quite good, but I'm afraid it wasn't as flavourful as I would have expected. Maybe it was my pomegranate juice? I used 100 percent unsweetened juice, and it was a tad too tangy for our liking. Next time I'll add a teaspoon of honey to enhance the flavour or omit the balsamic vinegar. Thanks for sharing a very nice idea :)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Sprinkle both sides of turkey with salt and pepper. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the turkey and cook until browned, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate.
  2. Add pomegranate juice, half cloves of garlic, balsamic vinegar and thyme to the pan. Bring the juice to a boil. Boil, stirring often, until reduced to 1/4 cup, 6 to 10 minutes. Remove the garlic.
  3. Whisk together broth (or water) and cornstarch breaking up any lumps. Add the slurry to the pan and cook, stirring constantly, until thickened, about 15 seconds.
  4. Reduce heat to medium, return the turkey and any accumulated juices to the pan, turning to coat with sauce, and cook for 1 or 2 minutes.
  5. Optional, toss the pomegranate seeds in with the turkey and stir just before serving.
