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.

This was so delicious!! and so easy to make too! I love quick recipes to fall back on when the day doesn't quite go as planned. I happened to have some red cabbage and spaetzle left over from my last sauerbraten adventure, so I just kind of tossed those in with this. It was a bit of cultural whiplash I know, but I loved it anyway. hehe.. We didn't really have any brandy on hand in the house, so I ended up substituting some rum extract and it tasted great all the same. Thanks a ton for making my life easier!

I fixed this for supper tonight. It was easy to make, which is something I like. I didn't use any salt. Served it with brown rice and fresh from the garden green beans. Everyone loved it. I will be making this again. Thanks for the recipe.
