    Ingredients and Preparation

    Ingredients Measures
    Turkey breast cutlets ½ pound
    Salt 1/8 teaspoon
    All-purpose flour 2 tablespoons
    Dried thyme 1 teaspoon
    Freshly ground pepper to taste
    Canola oil 2 + 1 teaspoons
    Sliced mushrooms ½ cup
    Dry white wine 4 ounces
    1. Place turkey between 2 layers of plastic wrap and pound with a mallet or the palm of your hand until each piece is ½ inch thick.
    2. Season turkey with salt. Combine flour, thyme, and pepper on a large plate. Dredge turkey in flour mixture so it is lightly coated.
    3. Heat 2 teaspoons oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms and sauté 1-2 minutes, until golden brown. Move mushrooms to the sides of the pan, add 1 teaspoon oil to the center, add turkey, and cook 3-4 minutes on each side, until cooked through.
    4. Remove turkey and add wine to pan. Reduce by half, stirring and removing brown bits off the bottom of the pan to flavor the sauce. Serve mushroom sauce over turkey.
