    Ingredients and Preparation

    Ingredients Measures
    Turkey breast cutlets 2 (6-ounce)
    Juice and zest (grated lemon peel) of ½ lemon
    Salt ¼ teaspoon
    Freshly ground pepper to taste
    Dry white wine (or substitute chicken broth) 1/3 cup
    Reduced-sodium chicken broth 1/3 cup
    Fresh chopped sage 1 tablespoon
    Butter 2 teaspoons
    Directions
    1. Combine turkey, lemon juice, salt, and pepper in a large zippered bag. Shake to coat turkey and let marinate 15 minutes.
    2. Prepare the outdoor grill or grill pan, if cooking indoors. Remove turkey from marinade and grill over medium-high heat about 3-4 minutes on each side, until golden brown and cooked through. Remove from heat.
    3. Meanwhile, bring wine and broth to boil in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Add lemon peel and sage, reduce heat, and simmer about 10 minutes to reduce. Remove from heat and add butter, whisking until melted.
    4. Spoon sauce over turkey and serve immediately.
