Our Turkey Cutlets with Cherry Sauce recipe provides a welcome weeknight alternative to chicken cutlets: The cutlets cook quickly, are healthy, and have a great flavor. We cooked the cutlets over medium-high heat without moving them so that they browned a bit. Only one side needed to be browned; if both sides were browned, the meat was liable to overcook. Once the meat was cooked, we used the same pan to prepare the sauce. We combined the tart flavor of dried cherries with sharp shallots, port, and orange juice for a deep, complex sauce. A little fresh rosemary added an herbaceous note that tied the sauce together.

Serves 4

One cutlet per person makes a skimpy serving, so we call for a total of six to serve four people. Add rice pilaf or mashed potatoes and a green vegetable, such as our Nutty Green Beans.
