These cutlets have a wonderful Parmesan crust and taste great topped with fresh lemon. A quick and easy weeknight meal your family will love. I like to serve this with a salad and a simple low point veggie like Sauteéd Brussel Sprouts, Sauteéd Zucchini with Tomatoes, String Beans with Garlic and Oil or Sauteéd Baby Zucchini. You'll be very tempted to have more than one cutlet!

- 8 (4 oz) turkey breast cutlets
- 4 egg whites, beat
- 3/4 cup seasoned breadcrumbs
- 1/3 cup Parmesan cheese
- salt and fresh pepper
- 2 tbsp butter
- 2 tsp olive oil
- lemon wedges for serving
Season cutlets with salt and pepper. Combine bread crumbs and Parmesan cheese in a medium bowl. In another bowl beat egg whites. Dip turkey cutlets in egg whites, then breadcrumb mixture, shaking off excess.
Heat a large nonstick frying pan on medium heat. Add half of the butter and olive oil. When butter melts, add 4 cutlets and cook a few minutes on each side, until golden brown and cooked through. Set aside on a baking sheet and keep warm in oven. Add remaining butter and oil to frying pan. Cook remaining cutlets. Serve with lemon wedges.
