Curry-spiced apricot sauce jazzes up lean turkey cutlets in a looks-exotic-but-is-really-easy way. Don't overcook the cutlets in Step 1--they continue to cook while resting.

Recipe Ingredients for Curried Turkey Cutlets with Dried Apricots

1 pound turkey cutlets
1/4 teaspoon salt, or to taste
1 Freshly ground pepper to taste
2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 cup finely chopped onion
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger
1 teaspoons curry powder
3/4 cup apple or pineapple juice
1/2 cup dried apricots, chopped
1 teaspoon cornstarch
4 scallions, thinly sliced
1/4 cup low-fat plain yogurt

Recipe Directions for Curried Turkey Cutlets with Dried Apricots

  1. Pat turkey cutlets dry with paper towels; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add turkey and cook until browned on both sides and no longer pink in the center, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate and set aside.

  2. Add onion to the pan; cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Add garlic, ginger and curry; cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add juice and apricots; bring to a simmer. Cook until the apricots are plump and the liquid is slightly reduced, about 3 minutes.

  3. Add cornstarch mixture to the pan and cook, stirring constantly, until thickened, about 1 minute. Return the turkey and any accumulated juices to the pan. Cook, turning the cutlets a few times, until coated and heated through, 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in scallions and mint (if using). Serve immediately, with a dollop of yogurt.
