Panko crumbs and Parmesan cheese provide a crispy, delicious coating for these turkey cutlets, and they take just minutes to bake.

Serve these flavorful cutlets with a tomato chutney or your favorite dip, or make a meal with a rice or potato dish and salad. They would also make a tasty addition to a tossed salad or Caesar salad.

What You'll Need

  • salt to taste
  • black pepper taste
  • 1 to 1 1/4 pounds turkey cutlets (or thin cut turkey scallopini)
  • 1 1/2 cups panko crumbs
  • 1/2 cup parmesan cheese (grated)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 large egg whites
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour

How to Make It

  1. Heat the oven to 450 F.
  2. Line a large baking pan with foil and spray with nonstick spray (jelly roll pan, baking pan, or roasting pan). 
  3. Sprinkle the turkey cutlets all over with the salt and pepper.
  4. Set up three breading trays or shallow bowls. Put flour in a breading tray or bowl. In another breading tray or bowl, combine the crumbs and Parmesan cheese.
  5. Beat the eggs, egg whites, water, and Dijon together and pour into another tray or bowl.
  1. One at a time, dip cutlets in the flour, then dip in the egg mixture, then dredge in the crumb mixture until thoroughly coated.
  2. Arrange the cutlets on the prepared baking pan. Spray the cutlets lightly with olive oil or canola oil spray or drizzle with melted butter.
  3. Bake cutlets for 10 to 15 minutes, or longer if your turkey cutlets are thick. To be sure, use an instant-read food thermometer. The temperature should be at least 165 F on a food thermometer inserted into the thickest part of a cutlet.
