- Total Time

table salt½ tsp
black pepper¼ tsp, freshly ground
olive oil1 tsp
chopped pecans¼ cup(s), or walnuts
dried cranberries2 Tbsp
dried plain breadcrumbs2 Tbsp, plain variety

- Preheat the broiler. Place an oven rack 4 inches from the heat source.
- Sprinkle the turkey with the salt and pepper. Heat the oil in a large ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Add the turkey cutlets and cook until browned and cooked through, about 3 minutes on each side. Remove skillet from the heat.
- Meanwhile, combine the nuts, cranberries, bread crumbs, and orange zest in a small bowl. Sprinkle the mixture evenly over each turkey cutlet, then top each with 1⁄2 tablespoon cheese. Place the skillet on the oven rack and broil 4 inches from the heat until the cheese is lightly browned, 1 – 2 minutes. Yields 1 cutlet per serving.
