Turkey Schnitzel

One of my favorite ways to prepare wild turkey. Tenderized, lightly breaded and fried it brings out the delicious flavor of this wild bird. Always moist, never dry it's delicious!

Prep time: 15 minutes

Cook time: 15 minutes

Servings: 8


1 wild turkey breast, skin removed and tenderized (pounded flat)

1 cup flour

1 Tbsp seasoning salt (I use Alpine Touch)

4 large eggs, lightly beaten

1 cup Italian seasoned breadcrumbs

Oil for frying (canola or vegetable)

1 large lemon, wedged

Fresh parsley for garnish


-Place the turkey breast between two sheets of plastic wrap and pound them until just 1/4 inch thick with the flat side of a meat tenderizer

-Cut into separate pieces, about the size of a small pork chop

-Season both sides with a sprinkle of Alpine Touch or your favorite seasoning salt or just salt and pepper

-Place the flour mixture, egg, and breadcrumbs on 3 separate plates (I use paper plates for easy clean up)

-Dredge the turkey in the flour then the egg and finally the breadcrumbs, coating both sides

-Pour a shallow layer of oil into your fry pan (you are frying one side at a time, you do not want the schnitzel submerged)

-Heat to 350 degrees

-Fry immediately for about 2-3 minutes on both sides until a deep golden brown

-Transfer to a plate lined with paper towels to absorb excess oil

-Serve with fresh lemon wedge (to squeeze over schnitzel)

-Top with parsley if desired
