Turkey Cutlets Piccata 

Total time: 25 minutes
    Thinly sliced turkey cutlets cook quickly and are a great substitute for the veal cutlets normally used in this dish.  If you can't get them get a turkey tenderloin and either slice it into thin cutlets yourself or ask your butcher. You could also use boneless, skinless chicken breasts.

     Instead of the usual boiled potatoes try this tasty alternative: Potatoes and onions simmered slowly in chicken broth, which they absorb by the end of cooking time.
