This is one of my favorite main dishes and it is easy. It came from a friend and I make it often. My kids loved it. Occasionally I will add chopped mushrooms.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In 3-quart saucepan over high heat, heat potatoes and enough water to cover to boiling. Reduce heat to low and cover and simmer 10-15 minutes until potatoes are fork tender. Drain and keep potatoes warm.
  2. Meanwhile dice tomatoes, thinly slice onion; set aside.
  3. On waxed paper, mix flour, salt, and rosemary. If turkey cutlets are large, cut them into desired serving size. Dip turkey cutlets into flour mixture to lightly coat.
  4. In non-stick 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat, in hot melted shortening, cook turkey cutlets, a few at a time, about 5 minutes or until lightly browned and they lose their pink color throughout, removing pieces to plate as they brown.
  5. Spoon off any fat in skillet. Stir in diced tomatoes, onion, and capers. Reduce heat to medium-low; cover and cook 10 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Return turkey cutlets to skillet; heat through.
  6. To serve, arrange potatoes and turkey cutlets on 4 dinner plates. Spoon sauce over turkey.

This was GOOD! I've enjoyed capers when they've been paet of a dish, but I've never used them in cooking. I won't be afraid to use them again. I used boneless, skinless chicken breasts (6), a can of peeled, diced tomatos,and some (about 1/4 lb) tiny crimini mushrooms. I'll double the amounts next week when we have company. Good recipie. Thanks for posting.
