Recipe by babygirl65

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.

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

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. 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.
  2. 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).
  3. 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.
  4. Add orange slices to skillet, cook 2 minutes. Transfer orange slices to platter with chicken (again orangel slices are optional).
  5. 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.
