Whole Wheat Pretzel Turkey Cutlets


  1. For cutlets:
  2. 2 cups whole wheat pretzels
  3. 1 cup whole wheat bread crumbs
  4. 1-1/5 pounds organic turkey breast, sliced into 1/2-inch cutlets
  5. 2 Tbsp butter
  6. 3 Tbsp light olive oil or canola oil
  1. Paper towels for draining
  1. For Greek yogurt ranch dressing:
  2. 1 cup non- or low-fat Greek milk yogurt (or yogurt of choice)
  3. 2 Tbsp fresh chives, finely chopped
  4. 1 Tbsp fresh parsley, finely chopped
  5. 1/2 tsp garlic powder (or 1 small garlic clove, minced)
  6. 1 Tbsp lemon juice
  7. 1 tsp honey
  8. 1/2 tsp Dijon mustard
  9. Kosher salt to taste


  1. Place pretzels in a food processor and pulse until finely broken down into small pieces.
  2. Combine with bread crumbs and mix well; taste for salt, as some pretzels already have a good amount on them. Place pretzel crumb mixture in a shallow baking dish to give you room to work.
  3. Place one turkey cutlet on pretzel crumbs, and roll over to cover both sides. Firmly press crumb mix into turkey cutlet. This will flatten your turkey cutlet to a little over a quarter of an inch, making cooking time a breeze. Set aside on a baking sheet. Repeat with the rest of your turkey cutlets.
  4. In heavy-bottomed skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add 3-4 cutlets and 1 Tbsp of butter and cook for 2 minutes before turning over. Add remaining 1Tbsp of butter when you turn over the cutlets, and cook for an additional 2 minutes. Drain on paper towels and repeat if necessary.

For Greek Yogurt Ranch Dressing:
Whisk all ingredients and store in the fridge up to 4 days, if it lasts that long!

Prep time: about 15 minutes
