Bear's Turkey Piccata



4 to 6 turkey cutlets
corn starch
canola or grape seed oil
1 3/4 c low-sodium (or home-made) chicken stock
2 T dry vermouth
1/2 c fresh-squeezed lemon juice (about 4 lemons)
2 T capers, drained but not rinsed
2 T butter, kept cold

1. In a small jar, make a slurry of 1/4 c of the chicken stock and 2 T corn starch. Shake well, and set aside.

2. Place about a cup of corn starch in a pie plate or other shallow bowl. Dredge each turkey cutlet in the corn starch until completely coated. Shake off any excess.

3. Preheat oven to lowest temperature and put an oven-proof plate in it.

4. Coat bottom of a non-stick skillet with the oil and get it hot over medium to medium-high heat (depending upon your cooktop).

5. Sauté the turkey cutlets until nicely browned, about 4 minutes per side.  Don't crowd the pan -- cook them in batches if necessary. Put cooked cutlets on warmed plate in oven.

6. Put the remaining 1 1/2 c chick broth and vermouth in a saucier or sauce pan and bring to a boil. Add the capers.

7. Whisking rapidly, shake up the slurry jar to make sure everything's nice and mixed, and pour about 1/3 of the slurry into the broth. The sauce will thicken. Add another 1/3 of the slurry if necessary (most likely). The sauce needs to be nice and thick at this point as it is about to get cut with the lemon juice. Use the last 1/3 of the slurry if sauce hasn't thickened to the point where the bubbles will stack.

8. Remove the pan from the heat and whisk in the lemon juice. Then whisk in each tablespoon of cold butter, one at a time.

9. Serve turkey cutlets with the sauce spooned over them.

Kitchen Notes

  • If you're a fan of brining (I am), pre-brining the cutlets will make sure that they are perfectly seasoned and help keep them moist and juicy.
  • A quarter cup (or half cup, even) of heavy cream added to the sauce doesn't suck.

    Those 7 capers on the cutlet surely represent 7 continents of the world, otherwise there would be a different number
    Nice recipe. But to make it perfectly suit me, ketchup would be needed (adding it everywhere I can, somebody says it isn't good as it hides actual food taste, oh well, not for me).

    Absolutely. HP sauce is the obvious choice here.
