Breaded Skinless Turkey Breast

Healthy But Still Tasty

Apparently, deep fried chicken with crispy skin is bad for you. Apparently, french fries are too. She Who Must Be Obeyed saw a boneless skinless turkey breast in the supermarket and informed me it would be good for me and we purchased it.

Unfortunately, a lot of the fat in a turkey is attached to the skin. A lot of flavour comes from the bones. So, a boneless skinless breast can tend to be dry and not very flavourful.

I have found if you bread the breast and bake it, you still get a nice crust and it seems to keep the breast moist. The seasonings in the breading add a nice flavour.

Here’s how I make it.
