  • 1 pound turkey breast cutlet, cut into 3/4-inch-thick medallions
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon fresh garlic, crushed
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 Tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 Tablespoon lemon juice
  • 4 teaspoons capers, drained


  1. Gently pound turkey medallions to an even thickness. Pat medallions dry with clean paper towels. Lightly sprinkle each medallion with salt and pepper.
  2. In large nonstick skillet, over medium-high heat, heat oil and butter. Add the garlic and sauté 30 seconds. Add the turkey medallions and sauté for approximately 1-1/2 minutes per side, turning each medallion over when edges have turned from pink to white. Continue cooking medallions until food thermometer reaches 165 °F and all centers of medallions are no longer pink.
  3. Remove skillet from heat. Stir lemon juice into sauce and sprinkle capers over top of medallions.
  4. Pour sauce over turkey and serve immediately.
