Curry-spiced apricot sauce jazzes up lean turkey cutlets in a looks-exotic-but-is-really-easy way. Don't overcook the cutlets in Step 1—they continue to cook while resting.

Ingredients
  • Total Time: 30 minutes

  • 1 pound turkey cutlets, cut into four portions (see Ingredient note)

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt, or to taste

  • Freshly ground pepper, to taste

  • 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil

  • 1/2 cup finely chopped onion

  • 3 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger

  • 1-2 teaspoons curry powder

  • 3/4 cup apple or pineapple juice

  • 1/2 cup dried apricots, chopped

  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch mixed with 1 tablespoon cold water

  • 4 scallions, thinly sliced

  • 2 tablespoons slivered fresh mint, (optional)

  • 1/4 cup low-fat plain yogurt

Directions
  1. 4 servings

  2. Pat turkey cutlets dry with paper towels; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add turkey and cook until browned on both sides and no longer pink in the center, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate and set aside.

  3. Add onion to the pan; cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Add garlic, ginger and curry; cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add juice and apricots; bring to a simmer. Cook until the apricots are plump and the liquid is slightly reduced, about 3 minutes.

  4. Add cornstarch mixture to the pan and cook, stirring constantly, until thickened, about 1 minute. Return the turkey and any accumulated juices to the pan. Cook, turning the cutlets a few times, until coated and heated through, 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in scallions and mint (if using). Serve immediately, with a dollop of yogurt.

bit excessive on the juice. I might use just water, or broth. If you use fresh apricots you might need alot less liquid
