Grilled Turkey Cutlets without Honey Mustard Sauce

Here’s another favorite recipe that I got from one of my Clayton, MO personal training friends. Whether you pan-fry them or grill them, they take only a couple of minutes per side.

¼ C canned cranberry sauce with whole cranberries
1 T plus 1 t honey mustard
1 t extra-virgin olive oil
1 lb trimmed boneless, skinless turkey cutlets
sea salt and pepper to taste

Preheat a grill over high heat.

In a small bowl, mix the cranberry sauce and mustard until well combined. Cover the bowl with a paper towel and microwave on high in 15-second intervals until the mixture is hot and begins to thin slightly, about 30 seconds total. Stir again to combine.

Rub the oil and then salt and pepper evenly over both sides of each cutlet. Grill the cutlets about 1 minute per side, or until no longer pink in the center. Transfer them to a large plate or platter and top evenly with the sauce. Serve immediately. Makes four servings.
