Turkey Marsala - "Poultry" Marsala Novice

I am really in the mood for chicken marsala. Conveniently enough I have some turkey cutlets on hand which need to be used and the liquor store called my name as I walked by this morning so I grabbed a bottle of dry Marsala wine. Will turkey breasts work in this preparation?

    1. They will work terrifically. I just finished up turkey marsala leftovers for lunch.
      I just seasoned and lightly floured the cutlets before browning and making the sauce etc.
      It was delicious.
      Same advice goes for Piccata, btw. Interchangeable.

      1. re: monavano

        Or most Scaloppine dishes whether Veal, Chicken, Rabbit,Pork or Turkey

      2. Yes - turkey cutlets are a good alternative for any dish that calls for veal or chicken cutlets/scaloppine. Turkey marsala is just fine! So is turkey schnitzel...

        1. Yes, turkey cutlets work fine. In fact, I ALWAYS use them (turkey "cutlets", NOT turkey breasts) for "poultry" marsala dishes. Much prefer them to chicken.
