     If you can't find turkey cutlets, substitute thinly sliced turkey tenderloin, pork cutlets or chicken breasts. The Pilaf should finish the mushrooms.

Lemon and Soy Glazed Turkey Cutlets

Total time: 20 minutes 
    Turkey cutlets, are thin slices of turkey breast meat.  They cook quickly and are particularly well suited to savory marinades and sauces.  If you can't find them, substitute thinly sliced turkey tenderloin or chicken breasts. This is an intensely flavored, savory dish.
