ISO Turkey Breast recipes

Turkey breasts are much more available and less expensive than chicken breasts here. I've tried using turkey breasts as if they were chicken breasts, but they come out dry and tough every time. I've tried modifying recipes to compensate for the turkey being drier, but it's still not the same moist, tenderness you get with chicken. Does anybody have recipes specifically for turkey breast? TIA!

P.S. Gonna try Rainee's Tetrazzini recipe for starters.

Brining should help significantly. Also, use a meat thermometer to ensure that you aren't overcooking - they cook much faster than you would think when you aren't cooking the entire bird.

This is one of my favorites:

Turkey Cutlets with Smoky Black Bean Sauce

You can also use chicken tenders. Serve with black beans and tortilla chips.


1/4 cup fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth
2 teaspoons onion powder
1 teaspoon bottled minced garlic
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon white wine vinegar
1/8 teaspoon salt
Dash of ground red pepper
1 (15-ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 (14.5-ounce) can diced tomatoes, drained
1/2 teaspoon barbecue smoked seasoning (such as Hickory Liquid Smoke)
2 tablespoons butter
8 (2-ounce) turkey breast cutlets
1/8 teaspoon salt
Cooking spray

Combine first 9 ingredients in a small saucepan; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 8 minutes. Stir in smoked seasoning; cook for 2 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in butter.

While sauce cooks, heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Sprinkle turkey with 1/8 teaspoon salt. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add turkey to pan; cook 2 minutes on each side or until done. Serve with sauce.

Serves 4

Velochic, I subscribe to a turkey recipe site. I get an email from them once a month or so. I will see if I can find it for you and post a link.

Thanks all. Esp. Alix.

I tried a variation of this one:

http://www.eatturkey.com/recipe/recipe.cgi/2/11369

And it was wonderful. I reduced the recipe since it wasn't a whole bird, and placed the breast on TOP of the onions as well.

Thanks!!!

Oh yum. That looks wonderful. I will have to see about keeping this thread active and adding leftover turkey recipe links to it!

Thanks for the reply velochic.

Alix,

Thanks for the great links. I signed up for the monthly recipes and printed out the turkey breast steak with chili-lemon basil sauce recipe.
