It’s easy to do because all you have to do is put the ingredients in the oven tray and the rest of the work is done by the oven. Easy right?

Usually, when we talk about turkey cutlets, everyone thinks of turkey breast slices. I will use in this recipe pieces of meat called “turkey shoulders” or “turkey medallion” which are round pieces of meat located above the turkey wings. It is a piece of muscle that is suitable for this type of recipe, made in the oven.

I will now show you what ingredients I used in this recipe.

Ingredients

So you need 750 g of turkey shoulder or if you can’t find it you can use slices of turkey breast, enough for four generous servings.

For an extra smoky flavour and a little fat, I will add 200 g of smoked bacon, but if you do not want this ingredient, it can be left out.

I will also use a leek, a kapia sweet red pepper (you can replace it with bell peppers of any colour) and two red apples for their sweetness and aroma.

Preparing the Ingredients

I prepare the meat first, which I cleaned a little of the fat and then I put it in a bowl. If you use turkey breast, you can cut it into 1 cm (0.5 inches) thick slices. I seasoned the meat with a tablespoon of crushed pepper paste, a tablespoon of honey, a teaspoon of marjoram, sea salt, freshly ground pepper and vegetable mix for soups.

I put in two tablespoons of sunflower oil and then I mix them by hand, massaging the pieces of meat well with all the ingredients.

Let the meat marinate until we prepare the rest of the ingredients. That is, after I washed them well, I cut the apples in half and I took out the stalk with seeds and I cut the peppers in two and I took out the seeds.

After that I sliced them all quite coarsely, because they will stay in the oven for quite a while anyway.

How to Make the Healthy Baked Turkey Cutlets With Vegetables?

We need an oven tray, I have a ceramic one, ideal for this type of recipe, but it can also be made of heat-resistant glass. On the bottom of this ceramic baking tray, I will pour about 25 ml of sunflower oil and I will put half of the sliced ingredients and a few sprigs of thyme, forming a bed for the meat.
