Review This Recipe
This recipe is great tasting and it is easy to make and my husband and the kids loved it.
This has quickly become one of our favorites. Some reviewers have mentioned how salty it can be. Bouillon, and anything that simmers in it, can be really salty. In place of bouillon I substitute extra chicken broth and then thrown in some capers to simmer at the end. That gives that little bite of salty without letting the turkey (or chicken if you used that) sit in something so high in sodium for a long time. You can always remove the capers for kids if they don't like the taste or look or them.
I have made this so many times since the first time! One of my boys is a picky eater and this is his favorite meal. After making it several hundred times, (haha) I've come up with many versions. As long as you use the fresh garlic, it'll taste pretty much the same, no matter how you cook it (even with chicken in the crockpot). Last year I served slices of this on my Thanksgiving buffet table. It was the first thing gone and everyone asked for the recipe.
QUICK, EASY, DELICIOUS
I had a lot of turkey cutlets that i thawed out the night before and wondered what am I going to do with all this. Well I made this along with Turkey Tetrazzini. THIS RECIPE took me about 30min to make. I had 6 small cutlets about the size of my hand. Once you get the cutlets cooked your home free! Since I made this in the middle of the day for dinner, it was actually lunch time for me....so i ate. I love the fact that it has garlic in it. The only ingredient I didn't have was the sage. I don't think I've ever had sage but made no difference to me. I'm sure my soon to be 3y.o daughter will like it too. She loves garlic(too bad for the kids at school tomorrow lol) As I sit here with a full belly remember that I had a cold...i think the garlic relieved my stuffy nose a bit.
When i made this I sauteed the garlic in the olive oil. I did need to use about 1/3 cup more oil than recommended but i am at high altitude. I omitted the instant bullion and just made the broth extra strong. It wasn't too salty and had a really garlicky , tasty flavor- will be making this again!
I couldn't find turkey cutlets, so I used the thick slices. Maybe that was the problem, but it was too salty, but not enough spices. I had to put some green onions on it for a little more flavor and put sour cream on it so that I wouldn't taste the salt so much. If I do cook this again, I will use chicken breasts instead.
Easy and Tasty Turkey
This recipe only took minutes to make and most of the ingredients are kept in the house. My family loved it, I have permission to make it again!!
Easy & Quick
This was very tasty. I substituted boneless, skinless chicken breasts for the turkey and after adding the flour to thicken it, I added around 1/4 cup more white wine. It was quick, easy and my family loved me for it.
It was quite a bit of work for little effect. While it tasted good, it was nothing spectacular. For 1/3 of the effort, I could have just made turkey and gravy and it would have been as good or better.
This was an easy and fantastic dish!! I even adjusted it to make chicken scaloppini and that was also great! Just remember to have everything ready when you are throwing the water, broth, etc. into the pot...(I had to make this twice since I burned it on the first try). I had never bought these turkey slices before and trying those alone were worth it! :)
My boyfriend (who rarely likes the things I cook) LOVED this! It was so yummy and the next time I made it I made extra sauce and used it over pasta.
I made this dish last night, and my Husband loved it. I did substitute with Chicken instead of Turkey. I love all the recipes from Meals.com. Now I know I will not purchase anymore cookbooks! :)
This is quick and easy and won review from my health-concious hubby!! I will definitely make it again.
Quick, Easy and Yummy!
I really enjoyed this recipe for something quick and healthy that tasted light and yummy! When I added the sage, the smell scared me but it was very tasty. I served it with spinach and wild rice and it was a great match!
Works for chicken also!
Instead of turkey, I used boneless, skinless chicken breasts with great results. Also, in the method the recipe calls for wine, but it's not listed in the ingredients. I put in wine in place of the 1/4 cup chicken stock and it was excellent!! So far, every recipe that I've tried has been great!! Way to go Meals.com
This recipe seemed to be poorly written. It didn't mention what kind of wine or what to do with the broth. I followed recipe until it was time to add wine, etc. I didn't use the bouillion cubes, just 8 oz of campbell soup broth, Marsala wine and added mediterranean capers. It was delicious when I improvised. I thought bouillion would have made it too salty. will definitely make it again--my way.
This recipe sounds great and I can't wait to try it, but I am not sure what kind of wine and how much to use. The ingredients list does not include it but the instructions do.
This recipe was quick and easy, I just substituted the turkey for chicken and used ground sage (not sure if it is the same thing as what the recipe call for). I added some small capers for texture. Will have with mashed potatoes and asparagus.
I will probably make this again in the future.
everyone just loved this recipe. Even the hard to please men in the family. Will be making this one over and over again. Great for the working women
Great Way To Prepare Turkey!!
This recipe is not only VERY easy, it is great tasting and pretty healthy. I have never had turkey come out so moist and full of flavor before. I followed the recipe exactly except I added fresh mushrooms. I would recommend this recipe to anyone and I myself will surely make it again.
