Spicy Ginger Turkey Cutlets

First appearing in our April 2002 issue, this go-to dinner is a hit with kids. Prep tips: Fresh ginger and orange juice taste great, but to save time, use ginger from a jar (available in the produce section) and reconstituted frozen juice. I make this gluten free by using rice flour, but regular flour works fine, too. Ingredient tip: If you can’t find turkey cutlets, simply cut boneless, skinless chicken breasts horizontally to create thin pieces.

  1. Dust turkey with flour and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add turkey; brown on both sides until cooked, 3–4 minutes per side (do not overcook). Remove and keep warm.
  2. Add ginger to skillet; cook 30 seconds, scraping up brown bits. Add brown sugar, red pepper flakes, and orange juice; stir to blend. Bring to a boil and cook, stirring occasionally, until slightly reduced, about 5 minutes. Return turkey and juices to pan. Simmer until warmed through and sauce thickens, about 3 minutes.
