Turkey Cutlets with Mushrooms, Basil & Tomatoes

I had bought some turkey cutlets I needed to cook up. I bought them because I thought they sounded good at the time, but when I got home, I had no idea what to do with them! I made a split decision based on ingredients I had on hand (and the Italian influence in the house). Wow... this turned out great! Highly recommend. This would be good with chicken, veal, or even fish! Enjoy!

4-6 Turkey cutlets, 1/2 in thick (or meat of your choice)
1 C almond meal
2 T dried parsley flakes
2 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. black pepper
1 T olive oil
9oz. mushrooms, sliced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 C organic, low sodium chicken broth
1/2 C coconut milk
1 C fresh basil, chopped
2 C grape tomatoes, sliced in half

Combine almond flour, parsley, pepper, and garlic powder. Coat turkey cutlets in breading-like mixture and set aside. Heat oil in a pan on med-high heat. Brown turkey cutlets on both sides and place in a baking dish. In same saute pan, add 1 tsp more oil. Saute garlic, but do not burn. Add mushrooms and cook until browned. Add chicken broth. Let it cook down a bit (about 5 minutes). Add tomatoes, basil and coconut milk, and mix well. Pour over turkey cutlets and bake in a 350 degree oven for only about 15 minutes!

While that's cooking.... chop up a couple zucchini (halved and sliced), 1/2 red bell pepper, 1 clove minced garlic, and 1 tsp. olive oil. Heat oil an saute garlic. Add peppers and cook until they're soft (3-5 minutes). Add zucchini. Saute a bit and then add 1/4 C chicken broth. Toss, cover, and simmer until zucchini is tender crisp. This was a GREAT variation on the usual!

Hope you enjoy!
