This came from a recipe card at the grocery store. A very quick to prepare, light and flavorful dish. Excellent served with mushroom rice (or risotto) and a steamed vegetable. Great for a fabulous weeknight meal. This recipe represents the light and healthy cooking style known in the Western U.S.

I liked the simplicity of this recipe. Only issue I had was waiting for the broth/cornstarch mixture to thicken up in the pan. Consequently I cooked the sauce longer than the directions stated and the lemon slices cooking longer made the sauce almost inedible. I salvaged it by added about 1 and 1/2 tablespoons of sugar. Next time I won't add the slices of lemon until the sauce is how I like it. It's my mistake not this recipe. I will definitely try again.
This was a delicious way to have turkey cutlets. I did lightly bread my cutlet with 2 tbsp of whole wheat flour with 1 tsp of parsley, 1/4 tsp salt and pepper mixed in. I used 1 tsp of olive oil. I also used no salt added low fat chicken broth. I for some reason didn't have any lemons, so I used about 3 lemons worth of the bottled stuff. I cooked my sauce alot longer to reduce it. I served with baby potatoes drizzled with the yummy sauce. Thank you for the recipe.
This was ok...I felt it was missing something, but not sure what. I will tweak it a little with some additional spices to see if that does the trick.
