This summer has been extremely hotter than ordinary. It is hard to get motivated into doing any kind of food preparations for the family when the temperatures are over a hundred degrees. Light and cold meals seem to satisfy most of our pallets these days. Serve this tasty dish with Angel Hair pasta and marinara sauce.

1 lb. boneless turkey breast cutlets (8 cutlets)
2 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
1/3 cup flour
½ cup Parmesan Cheese
2 tsp. dried basil
1 tsp. black pepper
1 tsp. salt
3-4 Tbsp. butter

1. Rinse turkey cutlets and pat dry. Brush turkey with lemon juice.

2. Combine flour and next 4 ingredients in a shallow dish. Dredge turkey in flour mixture, shaking off excess.

3. Melt 3 Tbsp butter in a large nonstick skillet over med-high heat. Cook turkey in 2 batches, 2 to 3 minutes on each side or until golden brown, adding remaining 1 Tbsp. butter to skillet as needed. Keep turkey warm on a wire rack in a jelly-roll pan in a 200 degree oven.
