Turkey Medallions with Tarragon and Maple/Mustard Glaze

I’m a big believer in using as few pots and pans as possible.  Nobody, and I do mean nobody, wants to work all day, come home and cook and then do a ton of dishes. There are a million other things to do like ANYTHING BUT DISHES.

This recipe is quick and easy and delicious.

Pair this with a great salad and some Pearled Couscous with Raisins, Almonds and Feta for a hearty but simple weekday meal.


1 tablespoon of coarse mustard

1 tablespoon of maple syrup plus 1 teaspoon

1 bunch of fresh tarragon – finely chopped

4 turkey cutlets

Salt and pepper

Olive oil

White wine


Pat the turkey medallions dry with a paper towel. Season lightly with pepper and a little salt.  Heat a bit of olive oil or whatever is on hand and sear the turkey on each side for a about 4 minutes each.  Make sure you get a nice crust on it.

Add the coarse mustard and a tablespoon of maple syrup and mix in pan. You can stir with the turkey cutlets to really mix it.

Throw in a splash of wine and the rest of the maple syrup. Add the fresh tarragon and cook for another 6-8 minutes. The cutlets are thin and don’t take long.

Remove the cutlets from the pan and deglaze with either chicken broth or white wine.

I put the glaze into dipping bowls but if preferred you can pour the glaze directly onto the turkey cutlets.

Start to finish this should take no more than 15 minutes.
