Quick-cooking turkey breast slices make this recipe a winner when you want a meal ready quickly. Flattened boneless chicken breast halves may also be used in place of the turkey.
6 turkey breast slices (about 1-1/2 pounds)
1/4 cup flour
1/8 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. pepper
2 Tbps. water
1 cup soft bread crumbs
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup butter or margarine
Minced fresh or dried parsley
Pound turkey to 1/4 in. thickness. In a shallow bowl, combine flour, salt and pepper.
In another bowl, beat egg and water.
On a plate, combine bread crumbs and Parmesan cheese.
Dredge turkey in flour mixture, then dip in egg mixture and coat with crumbs. Melt butter in a skillet over medium-high heat. May add some olive oil also, only as needed to coat bottom of skillet.
Brown on each side about 5 minutes, sprinkle with parsley and serve.
P.S. - Often recipes call for meat only being cooked a short time. We must realize if meat has been sitting out to reach room temperature it would only take a short time. But, if we take something right of the refrigerator, it will of course take a little longer.
Serve with a salad and vegetable, or something left over from another meal. Enjoy.
Homemade Noodles (Yes! You Can!)
Equipment: Rolling pin, medium size bowl, fork, cutting board, sharp knife, large pan. 4-6 servings.
In a medium bowl, put in 1 egg 1/2 tsp. salt. Stir with fork and add 1 cup all-purpose flour. Mix well and use clean hands to form a ball, may work in just a little more flour, it should not feel moist. On your working surface, put a hand full of flour, place ball of dough on that and roll out very thin with your rolling pin. Add more flour if needed, now you have a good sized circle. Take a knife and cut dough straight down the center and then starting in the middle, cut across. Take one small section at a time and roll it up. If it feels sticky at all sprinkle more flour before rolling. Then take a sharp knife and cut about 1/2 an inch across the roll of dough. Open up and lay each strip side by side. Continue until all of the dough is rolled up and cut into strips. If possible, letting dry for 2-3 hours longer would not hurt. Good to turn them after an hour to dry on the other side. Sometimes I have went ahead and cooked, but you would have to be very careful to add only a few at a time.
When you are ready to cook your noodles, take a large or medium-large pan and put in 1 cup of water and 2 cups of chicken broth (canned okay). Bring to simmer, add a hand-ful of the noodles, let them boil alone for a few seconds than add another handful, waiting for a few seconds each time.
Now, take a large spoon and gently stir your noodles. Next add a few more, let them settle in a minute, and add remaining dried noodles. Stir, cover and cook for five minutes. Stir well and add at least one cup of cooked pieces of chicken or beef. Stir well, then add salt and black pepper. Very tasty to serve on mashed potatoes.
Quick Mashed Potatoes
Take 3 medium potatoes, wash, peel and cut into about 1 inch pieces. Place in a microwave safe container or dish and cook about 7 minutes. Check with fork to test doneness. Drain water off and mash with a fork. Add some salt.
Be sure all pieces are mashed then add several Tbls. of milk. Mix with fork. Add a little more. Add 2 Tbls. butter (soft), mix well and serve. Good with your noodles and chicken on top. Makes 4-5 servings.
For a different basting sauce, spoon the syrup from canned peaches over your ham before baking.
A few pieces of ham are very tasty to add to scalloped potatoes. I always like some chopped onion also.
Strips or cubes of cooked ham is good to add to salads, or macaroni salad.
