Turkey Cutlets with Pan Salsa

Ingredients

four 3/8-inch-thick turkey cutlets (about 1/2 pound total)
1/3 cup all-purpose flour seasoned with salt and cayenne
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1/3 cup low-salt chicken broth
2 tablespoons cider vinegar
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
cayenne to taste
2 plum tomatoes, peeled, seeded, and chopped fine
2 scallions, minced
1 fresh or pickled jalapeño, seed and minced
1 tablespoon chopped dry-roasted peanuts
1 tablespoon minced fresh coriander

Instructions

Dredge the cutlets in the flour mixture, shaking off the excess. In a heavy skillet (preferably cast-iron) heat the oil over moderately high heat until it is hot but not smoking, and in it sauté the cutlets for 1 to 2 minutes on each side, or until they are golden brown on the edges and cooked through.

Transfer 2 cutlets to each of 2 plates and keep them warm. To the skillet add the broth, the vinegar, the chili powder, the cayenne, and salt to taste, deglaze the skillet over moderately high heat, scraping up the brown bits, and stir in the tomatoes, the scallions, and the jalapeño.

Cook the sauce until it is thickened, pour it over the cutlets, and sprinkle the cutlets with the peanuts and the coriander.

Notes: Serves 2. Can be prepared in 45 minutes or less. The salsa is so good you might want to double it!
