  • Summary

    Here we top pecan-crusted turkey cutlets with a mildly spicy grilled peach salsa. It's better to prepare your own turkey cutlets from a whole tenderloin than buy them precut. The precut ones often vary in size and shape, leading to different cooking times. You can also use 4 small boneless, skinless chicken breasts in place of the turkey tenderloin.

    Ingredients

    • 1 pound turkey tenderloin, cut crosswise into 4 equal portions
    • 2 cups nonfat buttermilk, (see Tip)
    • 2 tablespoons kosher salt
    • 1 tablespoon sugar
    • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
    • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
    • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
    • 2 large egg whites
    • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
    • 1 cup fresh breadcrumbs, preferably whole-wheat (see Note)
    • 1/2 cup finely chopped pecans
    • 2 tablespoons canola oil,divided
    • 1 1/4 pounds ripe peaches, (3-4 medium), halved and pitted
