Packed with flavour, this 30-minute meal is simple yet sophisticated.
The flavours in this recipe could be my most favourite of all time. This Turkey Scallopini, Mushrooms and Artichokes in Madeira Cream Sauce has a creamy slightly sweet wine sauce with briny capers and tart artichoke… yum.
Thin cut, boneless turkey breast cutlets are the main player here. I found them packaged at my local Loblaws, where they’re sliced very thin – no pounding required! You only need to quick-fry these babies, 1-2 minutes per side. When the turkey is nestled in this sophisticated wine sauce, it’s a dish fit for company. No one will ever know how easy it was…
Maderia is a fortified wine made on islands off the coast of Portugal. It can be consumed as an aperitif on its own or with dessert. Cheaper versions are flavoured with salt and pepper to use in cooking. If you don’t have any Maderia, a dry fortified wine, like sherry, will work just as well.
You have got to try this Turkey Scallopini, Mushrooms and Artichokes in Madeira Cream Sauce… it is delicious! Serve alone or over rice, buttered noodles or mashed potatoes. Enjoy!
