Turkey Milanese

This recipe is inspired by my days as a server at Romano's Macaroni Grill.  I was working through college, my roommates also worked there, and we were all pretty much family.  Pollo Milanese was one of our favorite dishes on the menu at the time.  Now, this variation of the recipe is a dish that my family today enjoys very much in our cozy little red kitchen.


Turkey Breast Tenderloins (pictured below)
1 cup of your preferred flour - we like wheat
2 eggs, beaten
1 cup panko bread crumbs
1/2 cup grated asiago or parmesan cheese
Canola or olive oil
Cherry or Grape Tomatoes
Arugula or spinach
Balsamic Vinegar

  1. Cut each turkey breast tenderloin in half.  Place between 2 pieces of saran wrap or inside a large ziploc bag.  Pound with the bottom of a pan or a bacon press until about 1/4 inch thick. 
  2. Set up your breading station:  flour in one pan, beaten eggs in another, then panko and cheese.  Season with salt, garlic, & pepper.
  3. Heat your oil.  Dredge your cutlets in flour, then eggs, then panko mixture.  Cook about 5 minutes per side, then drain on paper towels.
  4. Top with greens, quartered tomatoes, and grated parmesan or asiago.  Drizzle with balsamic vinegar.
