  • Makes: 4
  • Serving Size: 4 oz. turkey, about 1 Tbsp. sauce
  • Preparation Time: 5 minutes
  • Cooking Time: 17 minutes


3/4 cup fat-free, lower-sodium chicken broth
3 Tbsp. no-sugar-added orange
marmalade (or peach or apricot preserves)
2 Tbsp. balsamic vinegar
1 tsp. Dijon mustard
1 tsp. cornstarch or arrowroot
1 Tbsp. olive oil
1 lb. skinless, boneless turkey cutlets
1/2 tsp. kosher salt
1/2 tsp. ground black pepper
1/2 cup diced onion
1 tsp. grated orange zest


  1. In a small bowl, mix together the broth, orange marmalade, balsamic vinegar, mustard, and cornstarch; set aside.
  2. In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium heat. Sprinkle the turkey cutlets on both sides with the salt and black pepper. Sauté the cutlets in the olive oil for 4 to 5 minutes, flip the cutlets, and sauté them for 4 to 5 minutes more. Remove the cutlets from the skillet, transfer to a plate, and set aside.
  3. Add the onion to the pan drippings and sauté for 3 to 4 minutes. Stir in the sauce, scraping up any browned bits from the skillet. Reduce the heat to low and simmer for 2 minutes. Return the cutlets and any accumulated juices to the skillet. Simmer for 1 minute. Sprinkle the turkey with the fresh orange zest and serve.
