1. Turkey Cutlets with Parmesan Crust

These turkey cutlets are everything a good dinner dish should be. They’re quick, easy, and delicious. 

The breadcrumb and Parmesan cheese crust create a thick, nutty crust that goes great with a drizzle of fresh lemon juice. 

Serve these quick and easy cutlets with just about anything from mashed potatoes to pasta or roasted veggies. 

2. Easy Turkey Cutlets in White Wine Sauce

Even turkey cutlets can taste elevated and expensive with the right spices and white wine. 

I love this recipe because it pairs bold spices like garlic, rosemary, and oregano for a flavorful punch of spices. And it’s so simple. 

Turkey cutlets become dry in seconds if cooked too long, but this bright and robust sauce keeps things nice and juicy. 

3. Turkey Cutlets with Gravy for One

You won’t need an entire turkey to enjoy Thanksgiving food year-round.

These rich and savory turkey cutlets go great with a simple gravy. 

They are flavorful, thanks to fragrant seasonings, onions, and garlic.

And don’t waste any pan-drippings. They help create the most amazing gravy. 

Serve it with a single serving of turkey’s greatest hits like mashed potatoes, stuffing, or a can of jellied cranberry sauce!

4. Turkey Cutlets with Dijon Sauce

These turkey cutlets with a creamy Dijon sauce taste nothing like the holidays. 

The rich and creamy Dijon mustard sauce is the real star of this show.

It’s so decadent and creamy with just a gentle hint of tanginess.

With such a rich sauce, the turkey cutlets stay moist and tender.

For a tasty variation, throw in some blue cheese toward the end of cooking for a double punch of bold flavors. 

5. Turkey Breast Cutlets in the Air Fryer

Raise your hand if you love your air fryer! That’s everyone, right? 

Cooking turkey cutlets in the air fryer couldn’t be easier.

Dust them with poultry seasoning, pop them into your air fryer, and let it do all the heavy lifting. 

They come out nice and juicy inside with a delicious crispy crust that goes great with potatoes or roasted veggies. 

6. Rosemary and Thyme Turkey Breast Cutlets

Rosemary and thyme are two of my favorite turkey seasonings.

There’s something about their earthy and peppery notes that go so well with the unique flavors of turkey. 

The buttery, herb-infused sauce ensures that even the thinnest turkey cutlets stay nice and juicy. 

The recipe is so easy to whip together but doesn’t shy away from bold, mouth-watering flavors. 

7. Garlic and Herb Turkey Cutlets

Gather round, fellow garlic lovers.

These garlic and herb turkey cutlets explode with bright flavors and are so easy to whip up in a jiffy. 

The sauce for this recipe incorporates fresh herbs, butter, and a quick deglaze with white wine to ensure no flavors get left behind. 

Be warned, however, because they are very garlicky!

This recipe might not be the best option for a date night. 

8. Lemon Turkey Cutlets

Turkey isn’t just a wonderful protein any time of the year.

These lemon turkey cutlets are fit for a warm summer night alongside a crisp garden salad and fresh veggies. 

Generous lemon juice and tangy mustard drizzle make this dish light and refreshing yet incredibly filling. 

9. Turkey Cutlets with Pan Gravy and Dressing

If you hunger for Thanksgiving foods but don’t have the time to put on the whole spread, this recipe is the next best thing!

It comes together in 30 minutes and captures the essence of Thanksgiving day (and you don’t need to clean your house for guests).

It has a simple pan-dripping gravy, savory stuffing, and bright herbs.

It’s a dinner that will soon be in your weekly dinner rotation. 

10. Turkey Parmesan

Move over, chicken Parmesan, there’s a new bird in town. 

This turkey Parmesan recipe is a unique take on an Italian classic.

It pairs savory turkey cutlets with gooey Parmesan cheese and bright seasoning. 

With a rich tomato sauce and so much cheese, it’s a great way to jazz up a classic.

Bonus points: turkey is lower in calories than chicken!

11. Grilled Turkey Cutlets with Mango Salsa

Gravy isn’t the only condiment that goes great with turkey.

These grilled turkey cutlets with sweet and spicy mango salsa are the ultimate dinner dish. 

The recipe pairs tender turkey cutlets with a mango salsa that’s to die for. 

Seriously, I want to put this mango salsa on everything.

Thanks to the mangoes, this dish is sweet but earns a kick of heat from diced jalapeno peppers. 

12. Crispy Fried Parmesan Turkey Cutlets

If you have leftover turkey from the holidays, these crispy fried turkey cutlets won’t disappoint. 

With a crispy, crunchy Parmesan cheese crust, they taste incredibly salty and nutty with nice and juicy insides. 

The crust of these cutlets ensures that all those meaty juices stay on the inside while the outside earns a delightful crunch. 

13. Turkey Scallopini with Creamy Lemon Sauce

This turkey scallopini recipe has everything. The turkey cutlets are crunchy, juicy, and pair well with a flavorful lemon sauce.

Breading and frying turkey cutlets help maintain their delicate juices to keep them nice and moist. 

Pair those cutlets with a tart and creamy lemon sauce, and watch your family gobble up this decent yet easy weeknight meal. 

14. Turkey Piccata

Turkey piccata is similar to turkey with gravy, but this isn’t your average savory gravy. 

Instead, the gravy infuses bright and salty additions like lemon juice, shallots, and capers.

It’s meaty and super savory with just an added pop of deliciousness. 

Serve it with a bed of roasted veggies, and be sure to put on plenty of that flavorful gravy!

15. Turkey Cutlets with Marsala and Shiitake Mushrooms

Looking for a healthy yet satisfying dinner dish to whip up on a busy weeknight?

These turkey cutlets with marsala and shiitake mushrooms ensure no one goes to bed hungry!

This dish simmers perfectly seasoned turkey cutlets in a decedent marsala wine sauce that oozes into every bite. 

Pair them with meaty and earthy shiitake mushrooms, and serve!

16. Thai Turkey Cutlet Recipe

Turkey is a very American protein, but this Thai turkey cutlet recipe infuses Asian spices for a flavorful twist on a classic. 

These Thai cutlet bowls are bright, colorful, and so incredibly healthy! 

With tender pieces of spicy seasoned turkey cutlets, fluffy rice, and julienned vegetables, this meal is hard to resist. 

17. Turkey Cutlets with Leeks and Butter Sage Sauce

My mouth is watering just thinking about this nutty butter sage sauce. 

While it’s an excellent recipe for a smaller Thanksgiving gathering, it’s also a perfect weeknight dinner dish. 

It’s quick and easy, but it tastes like you spent all day in the kitchen. 

It boasts a nutty sage butter sauce that soaks into all those nooks and crannies in a breaded turkey cutlet.

There’s also a sharp bite from leeks.
