Turkey Escalopes with Sage Butter

Turkey with Garlic, Lemon and Sage ButterTurkey escalopes with garlic, lemon and sage butter. Here is a really quick  and simple dish that is full of flavour yet  easy enough for a mid week dinner. It is so quick that by the time the potatoes and broccoli were steamed, the turkey was ready. You could also use chicken bashed flat or thin pork chops. The buttery sauce is also great for vegetables.   Start by dipping the turkey in seasoned flour.

  1. Although I’m sure this method would be wonderful for chicken and pork, as you suggested, I think I’ll stick with turkey. As much as I enjoy it, I rarely prepare turkey outside of the Thanksgiving holiday. Your dish sounds like the perfect reason to break that habit. Thanks for sharing!

    1. Thanks John. There is more of a range of turkey cuts here in France than there is in the UK and it’s cheaper too. We often have turkey for curry as well.
