Dried thyme 1 teaspoon
Freshly ground pepper to taste
Canola oil 2 + 1 teaspoons

  1. Directions
  2. Place turkey between 2 layers of plastic wrap and pound with a mallet or the palm of your hand until each piece is ½ inch thick.
  3. Season turkey with salt. Combine flour, thyme, and pepper on a large plate. Dredge turkey in flour mixture so it is lightly coated.

  5. Remove turkey and add wine to pan. Reduce by half, stirring and removing brown bits off the bottom of the pan to flavor the sauce. Serve mushroom sauce over turkey.
