Turkey Marsala

Mushrooms of any type may be used in this elegant dish. Nutty-tasting, oven-roasted Brussels sprouts make a great side, as does quick-cooking barley or some brown rice.

Serves 2

Prep Time 25 min

Total Time 25 min.


  • 2 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 8 ounces turkey cutlets
  • 3 teaspoons canola oil, divided
  • 3 cups thinly sliced, mixed mushrooms, such as shiitake, oyster, chanterelle, white or cremini (6 ounces)
  • 1/4 cup Marsala, (see Note)
  • 1/4 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth, (see Tips for Two)
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh parsley

Cooking Directions

Step 1

Whisk flour, salt and pepper in a shallow dish. Dredge turkey in the flour mixture.

Step 2

Heat 2 teaspoons oil in a medium nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add the turkey and cook until just beginning to color, about 2 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate and cover with foil to keep warm.

Step 3

Increase heat to medium-high. Add the remaining 1 teaspoon oil and mushrooms; cook, stirring often, until softened, 2 to 4 minutes. Cover, reduce heat to low and cook, stirring occasionally, until the mushrooms are tender, 2 to 4 minutes.

Step 4

Increase heat to medium-high, add Marsala and broth; bring to a boil. Cook, stirring with a wooden spoon to scrape up any browned bits, until the sauce thickens slightly, 1 to 2 minutes. Reduce heat to medium-low, return the turkey to the pan. Cook, turning once, until the turkey is heated through, 1 to 2 minutes. Serve garnished with parsley.
