    DrGaellon's Note:

    Crispy outside, quickly cooked so it doesn't have time to dry out, served with a bright lemony butter sauce, this is a great way to enjoy turkey for Thanksgiving or all year round. Adapted from a recipe in Alton Brown's _Good Eats 2: The Middle Years_.

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 200°F.
    2. 2
      Slice turkey across the grain into 1/2" slices. Place slices, one at a time, between sheets of plastic wrap or waxed paper. Pound out until 1/8-1/4" thick. Repeat until all pieces are pounded. Sprinkle both sides of each piece with salt and pepper, then dredge both sides in flour; tap off excess flour.
    3. 3
      Place olive oil and 4 tbsp butter in a 12" skillet over medium heat. (Non-stick will not yield a good sauce; stick to regular.) When foaming subsides, add turkey, being careful not to crowd the pan. Brown turkey on both sides, about 1 minute on each side; repeat with any remaining turkey. Transfer to an ovensafe plate and place in oven to stay warm.
    4. 4
      Add shallots to pan and reduce heat to low; saute until shallots are translucent, about 3 minutes. Add wine and lemon juice and simmer 2-3 minutes, until slightly reduced. Add remaining butter (which should be cold) and whisk until sauce is glossy and slightly thickened. Adjust salt and pepper and stir in parsley (and capers if using). Pour over cutlets and serve.
