Turkey Cutlets with Garlic Butter Sauce

20 Mar

1 pound turkey cutlets (turkey breast, thinly sliced)
½ teaspoon oil
1 teaspoon butter
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1/3 cup chopped parsley
½ cup chicken stock

Pound the turkey slices with a meat pounder until they are as thin as possible.

Heat the oil in a frying pan and add the butter. Sauté slices until they are lightly browned on each side. You may need to do this in batches.

Remove to a platter, sprinkle with salt and pepper and cover to keep hot.

Add the chopped garlic and parsley to the oil and butter in the pan and add half of the chicken stock. Bring to a boil, scraping the sides of the pan.

Add the remaining stock and continue to cook until the sauce is reduced by half the volume. Pour over turkey slices.
