Lemon Dijon Turkey Breast

May 13, 2015

D and I made this for dinner on a whim after spotting some turkey breasts at a local grocery store. We paired them with red onion, mustard, lemon and capers for a delicious dinner.

You will need:

  • 2 lb turkey breast, cut into 6 pieces
  • 1/4 t salt
  • 1/2 t ground pepper
  • 2 T olive oil
  • 1 T butter
  • 1/2 small red onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 c dry white wine
  • 1/4 c Dijon mustard
  • 1 lemon, zested and juiced
  • 1 T capers, chopped

  2. Pat dry with paper towels.
  3. Season with the salt and pepper on both sides.

  5. Add the turkey and cook 3 minutes per side, until golden and cooked through. Cook in batches if needed.

  11. Allow to reduce by at least half.
  12. Top the turkey with the sauce and serve hot!
