Turkey Cutlets with Carmel Sauce

Chris Adlfinger


I was given this recipe years ago by a chef who served it at his restaurant. I have made it many times and sometimes have used oven baked chicken tenderloins instead of turkey. This is great with any pasta or rice, for the picture shown it is served with Spatezle.
