I have been looking for a good recipe for Turkey Piccata and I found it. I did add a dry white wine to the sauce ( kept the same amount of liquid) and I did pound the turkey cutlets, but not thin so it stayed juicy and that's the way I had it at a resturant and loved it. This recipe is great and easy to make. a keeper. LSL

This was a huge hit! I used seasoned bread crumbs with paprika and ground pepper added. I melted butter with some olive oil to saute the cutlets in. My son ate it right off the warming platter! I put the rest into the lemony sauce and added artichoke hearts. This will become a regular in our home for family and company as well. Thanks, Ted!
