I found this recipe in a magazine many years ago. It is tasty and low in calories.
I like to serve it over rice or noodles.

1 lb
turkey breast, sliced (cutlets)
1 Tbsp
vegetable oil
8 oz
mushrooms, sliced
1/4 c
onion, finely chopped
1/2 c
dry white wine (optional)
3/4 c
beef broth, reduced sodium, refrigerated, with the fat removed from the top
3 Tbsp
all-purpose flour
1/4 tsp
1/4-1/2 tsp
2 tsp

1/4 tsp

How to Make Turkey with Mushroom and Tarragon sauce


  • 1Dry the turkey cutlets with paper toweling. Cut into 3x1 inch strips.
  • 2Heat oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium heat. Working in batches if necessary, panfry the turkey for 30 seconds a side. Remove to a plate and keep warm.
  • 3Saute mushrooms and onion in skillet over low heat for 3 minutes or until the mushrooms are soft. (you can add several TBS of water to prevent sticking if needed.) Add the wine.
  • 4In a 2 cup measuring glass, stir the flour into the beef broth until smooth. Pour into skillet and stir. Add salt and pepper. Bring to a boil. Lower heat and stir constantly until the mixture thickens slightly.
  • 5Lower heat to very low. Stir in lemon juice and tarragon. Return turkey to skillet. Cook 1 to 2 minutes until turkey is done.
  • 6Notes:
    I have used lemon juice concentrate instead of fresh lemon juice.
    If you prefer, you can flatten the turkey with a mallet before you begin cooking.
    If I'm not using wine, I add water or more broth to make up the volume.
