Rosemary Turkey CutletsPosted by in Food
I like turkey but find turkey cutlets hard to work with. They’re so thin that they can overcook very quickly. They also tend to be a little bit tough and flavorless. I happened upon a recipe in July Bon Appetit that involves marinating them and then grilling them, so I gave it a try. I had 4 cutlets and I marinated them in a mix of olive oil, lemon juice, 2 crushed garlic cloves and 1/2 tsp of rosemary, with salt and pepper for about half an hour. I grilled them. At the same time I also grilled some zucchini spears that I sprayed with cooking spray.
I was very pleased with how the turkey turned out. It was flavorful and pretty tender. Thumbs up on this method! The zucchini was also quite good. And I didn’t have to turn on the stove!

Who says you’re not inspired! You go girl.. these look delicious and anything with rosemary has to taste perfect 🙂
i always seem to mess up on cooking turkey. no matter what method i use, the turkey seems to come out really dry. i will try your method and hopefully it comes out well. thank you.
Marinating seemed to really make a difference. I’ve tried turkey cutlets lots of ways and had just about given up completely.
Bet this would be yummy cooked over a barbeque!
These look wonderful, Brette. Now that we’re cooking again, I want to try them.
We have so much fresh happy rosemary growing in our yard. This is a good recipe for me to try!
I love that it only had to marinate for 30 min. I, too, have the same issues with turkey. So this sounds like a true winner!
Yes, a definite benefit!
This looks wonderful. I love anything that’s done on the grill, doesn’t require heating up the house with minimal dishes to do!
It’s always a bonus at this time of year.
