Here is a quick but very tasty recipe, for all of you that either will have some turkey leftover meat, or will not have, for any reason, the possibility to share your meal with enough people to cook a whole bird.
Ingredients for 2:
- 4 to 6 Slices of turkey breast (raw) or raw leftovers of turkey meat in the same quantity
- 3 lemons (wash them and remove the zest with a grater and put it on the side)
- half cup of white flour
- half cup of white whine
- half cup of boiling water
- Black pepper (decide quantity acording to own taste)
- 1 teaspoon of butter
- 1 tablespoon of oil
- 1 Frying Pan and lid
Wash the lemons and with a grater remove the zest and put it on the side.
Take the turkey breasts and cover them completely in flour and put them on the side.
Warm up a pan with oil and butter, let the butter melt, and when it is nice and warm, turn the fire to medium high.
Put the turkey breasts in the pan and allow them to get nice and golden turning them on every side. Salt as needed, then put the fire on LOW and throw the zests, and the 1/2 cup of wine on the turkey, let it slowly evaporate, and before the turkey dries, pour the cup of boiling water on it, with pepper. Cover it partially with the lid and let all liquid slowly evaporate while turning the turkey meat once in a while untill the turkey and pan will be in a nice velvety thick lemon sauce.
This dish is really nice if you decide to accompany it with roast potatoes or simple white rice and steamed artichokes seasoned in lemon and olive oil. White wine would probably be the best choice for it or even a nice fresh blonde beer will do!
