Diestel product:

1 1/2 to 2 lbs. Diestel Turkey tenders (approx. 4 tenders)

Ingredients:

1 1/2 to 2 lbs. Diestel Turkey tenders (approx. 4 tenders)
3 to 4 Tbsp. whole wheat flour
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/4 tsp. black pepper, freshly ground (or salt-free lemon pepper seasoning)
dash of salt
1Tbsp. olive oil
2 Tbsp butter (soy butter)
2 large shallots, thinly sliced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 cup mushrooms, sliced
1/2 cup white wine
2 Tbsp. lemon juice
2 Tbsp. capers

Directions:

Place turkey between two sheets of wax paper and pound with a mallet until 1/4” thick. Mix together flour, black pepper (or salt-free lemon pepper), salt and garlic powder. Lightly dredge turkey in flour mix, shake off excess flour. Heat olive oil in a skillet. Sauté turkey for approximately one minute per side then remove from skillet. Add butter, shallots, mushrooms and garlic to skillet and sauté for two minutes. Reduce heat to medium low then slowly add lemon juice and wine, stirring constantly to keep sauce from breaking. Add turkey back to skillet, spooning sauce over top. Top with capers and heat through, approximately five minutes.
