Low carb recipe for Mustard-Pecan Turkey Cutlets which belongs to the Poultry recipe category.

Ingredients Needed

  1. 3 turkey breast cutlets, about 4 ounces (115 g) each
  2. cup (60 g) shelled pecans
  3. 1 tablespoon (15 ml) spicy brown or Dijon mustard
  4. 3 tablespoons (45 g) mayonnaise
  5. 1 tablespoons (21 g) butter

Cooking Instructions

Place the pecans in a food processor with the S-blade in place and pulse until they're ground medium-fine.

(Alternately, you could buy the pecans already ground.

) Mix together the mustard and mayonnaise, blending well.

Lay the turkey cutlets on a plate and spread half of the mustard and mayonnaise mixture on one side.

Sprinkle half of the ground pecans over the mustard and mayonnaise and press lightly with the back of a spoon to help them stick.

Spray a large, heavy skillet with nonstick cooking spray.

Place over medium-high heat.

Melt the butter and add the cutlets, pecan side down.

Saute for about 4 minutes.

With the cutlets still in the pan, spread the remaining mustard-mayo mixture on the uncoated sides and sprinkle the rest of the pecans over that, once again pressing them in a bit with the back of a spoon.

Flip the cutlets carefully, doing your best not to dislodge the crust.

Saute for another 5 minutes and serve.

Scrape any yummy toasted pecans that are stuck to the skillet over the cutlets before serving.
