This is the BEST I have ever tasted!! I love citrus with chicken and this is yummy!! I always double the sauce because my family likes the sauce on everything. I usually serve this with some rice and green beans.
- 2 large oranges
- 1⁄2 cup chicken broth
- 2 tablespoons brandy
- 2 tablespoons orange marmalade
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons cornstarch
- 2 teaspoons olive oil
- 1 lb turkey breast cutlets (4)
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄4 teaspoon black pepper
- From 1 or 2 oranges, squeeze 1/3 cup of juice. Cut remaining orange into 1/4" thick slices (this is optional). In a small bowl, combine orange juice, broth, brandy, marmalade and cornstarch. Stir until blended, set aside.
- In a non-stick skillet, heat oil over medium heat until hot. Add turkey cutlets, sprinkle with salt and pepper (I use Nature's Seasoning, personsal preference).
- Cook cutlets, 5-8 minutes on each side or until lightly browned on the outside and no longer pink on the inside. Transfer to a platter and keep warm.
- Add orange slices to skillet, cook 2 minutes. Transfer orange slices to platter with chicken (again orangel slices are optional).
- Stir juice mix to blend and add to skillet. Heat to boil, and boil for 1 minute, Add cutlets and orange slices back into pan. Keep warm until ready to servce.
This is the type of recipe that I put in my permanent, regular rotation box. Quick, easy, delicious and healthy! I made a couple small changes...we didn't have orange marmalade and because none of us in our house uses orange marmalade on our toast (so I didn't want to buy a whole jar for just 2 T.), I just pulled pulp from the orange as I juiced it (I only used one very large orange). Also, instead of salt and pepper, I did a very light sprinkle of Montreal seasoning mix, which tasted great with the sauce. DH and I don't drink brandy so I bought one of those mini-bottles for 99 cents at our local liquor store, worked out great, we loved the flavor in the sauce. The cutlets I bought were very thin and the cook time on each side was much less than 5-8 minutes, it was more like 1-2 minutes and I didn't use a non-stick pan...I used my old reliable cast-iron and that was probably why it cooked so fast. Didn't matter, they were delicious and I'm already planning on making them again next weekend. Oh, and BTW, in step 4 you mention chicken, when turkey is the main ingredient....I would have knocked off a star for that if the resulting dish wasn't so good!! Thanks babygirl for posting this recipe, it will be made many more times at my house
I love this recipe! Simple, fast, and great flavor. The sauce is delicious. I didn't have brandy, so I substituted dry sherry as I didn't think it would make a huge difference. Next time I'll try it with the brandy. The only problem I had was that my cutlets were too thin, and even though I cooked them for much less time than the 5 min., they still came out on the tough side. Totally my fault, but they still tasted delicious! Thanks for the recipe.
Fast, easy, and scrumptous to boot. We served this over garlic couscous and the results were a huge hit. Turkey cutlets are a flexible and healthy ingredient that lend themselves to a wide variety of great recipes. This is one of the better ones we have tried. Thanks for the keeper.
