This is a very simple, yet elegant dish.  It is one of those dinners that appears as if you spent much more time making it than it actually takes!

  • 1½# boneless, skinless turkey (or chicken) breast
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • ¼ cup flour 
  • ⅓ cup olive oil
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • Juice of 2 lemons
  • ½ cup dry white wine
  • capers, if desired

Turkey Piccata

Preheat oven to 200° 

Pound turkey breasts lightly (I do it in between waxed paper)

Sprinkle each piece with salt and pepper; dredge lightly in flour 

Heat olive oil and butter over med/high heat

When oil is hot, add floured turkey pieces, cook until lightly brown (about 2 minutes each side)

Transfer to a plate and put it in heated oven; repeat with the remaining pieces 

In same pan, add lemon juice and stir with whisk; add white wine, stir with whisk

Continue cooking over med/high heat until sauce thickens up – about 10 minutes; add capers if using 

Plate turkey and spoon sauce over each piece 

Mangia bene!
