Prep Time: 20 mins
Total Time: 38 mins
Servings: 4 servings

1 turkey breast tenderloin (13 to 15 ounces) 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour 1/4 teaspoon salt 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper 2 teaspoons olive oil 1 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth 2 teaspoons finely shredded lemon peel2 tablespoons lemon juice2 cloves garlic, minced 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard 1/4 cup sliced green onions Lemon peel strips (optional) Sliced green onions (optional) Thin lemon slices (optional)
1 Split turkey breast tenderloin in half horizontally; cut each half in half crosswise to make 4 portions. Place one of the turkey portion between two pieces of plastic wrap. Using the flat side of a meat mallet, lightly pound turkey to about 3/8-inch thickness. Remove plastic wrap. Repeat with remaining turkey portions.
2 In a shallow dish, combine flour, 1/8 teaspoon of the salt, and the pepper. Coat each turkey portion with flour mixture, turning to coat evenly. Shake off excess flour mixture.
3 In a large nonstick skillet, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Add turkey portions; cook about 6 minutes or until browned, turning once to brown evenly. Add broth, 2 teaspoons lemon peel, lemon juice, garlic, dry mustard, and remaining 1/8 teaspoon salt to skillet. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, about 10 minutes or until turkey is no longer pink and cooking liquid is slightly reduced. Add the 1/4 cup green onions. Cook for 2 minutes more. To serve, transfer turkey to serving plates. If desired, top with lemon peel strips, additional green onions, and lemon slices. Serve with some of the cooking liquid. Makes 4 servings.
