    East Wind Goddess's Note:

    Turkey breast cutlets (now conveniently available pre-cut at the local grocery) have a texture and flavor similar to veal (which I don't eat) and is more flavorful than chicken, but it works across the board, to your preference. Make extra sauce if you want to serve over pasta or rice: this is an amount sufficient for the scallopini. Adapted from a Craig Claiborn recipe. Can be made ahead and frozen, thaw/reheat to serve over freshly-prepared pasta or rice.
