Grilled Lemon Turkey Cutlets

There was a big meat sale at the store this week. I loaded up, big time: over 25 pounds of meat! Yes, I know, that seems crazy, but it all goes in the freezer. Stock up when it's cheap!

One of the things I purchased was a package of turkey cutlets. I didn't really know what I wanted to do with it, other than grill it. I found this recipe from Everyday Food and swapped the turkey for the chicken. It turned out great! The lemon juice marinade tenderizes the meat and gives it a nice, subtle flavor.

Grilled Lemon Turkey Cutlets

1 tbsp. olive oil
1 garlic clove
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice, plus lemon wedges, for serving
Coarse salt and ground pepper
1 1/2 pounds turkey cutlets

Heat grill to high. Mince the garlic clove, and place in a shallow dish. Add lemon juice and the oil; season with salt and pepper. Add chicken, and toss to coat. Let stand at room temperature at least 5 minutes (and up to 30).

Grill turkey until opaque throughout, 1 to 3 minutes per side. Serve with lemon wedges.
