  • 1 pound turkey breast cutlets
  • Salt and pepper
  • ¼ cup about flour (you don't have to flour the cutlets, but I think they cook better if you do)
  • 2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon unsalted butter
  • For the Glaze
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped shallot or onion
  • 1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon unsalted butter
  • cup apricot preserves
  • 1 chile in Adobo minced
  • 1 tablespoon Adobo sauce start here and add bit by bit until you have the sweet-hot flavor you love


  • Season the turkey cutlets with salt and pepper and lightly flour. Heat the oil in a large skillet, when hot add the butter. Add the cutlets (in batches if necessary) and fry, about 1 to 2 minutes per side (they should be slightly browned, but don't cook too long as they will cook more in the sauce). Remove them from the pan as they brown.
  • While the cutlets are browning, heat the oil and butter in a small skillet, add the shallots (or onion), and sauté for about 3 - 4 minutes or until soft. Add the preserves and allow them to melt, then add the minced chile and adobo sauce. Stir well. 
  • Pour the glaze into the skillet, then add the cutlets back. Simmer slowly, while turning them often in the glaze. Once they are all hot and well glazed, they are ready to serve.


  • LindySez: You can also make this recipe with chicken cutlets or tenders, or pork tenderloin cutlets. As long as they remain about ¼ inch thick the cooking time should remain the same. If thicker, cook the meat until done, then add to the glaze
