5-Ingredient Creamy Lemon Garlic Skillet Turkey
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 4-6
  • 2 lbs. boneless Canadian turkey breast
  • 6-8 cloves garlic
  • 1 lemon; ¾ juiced, ¼ sliced thinly
  • 3 tbsp. olive oil
  • 2 tbsp. flour
  • Plus salt, pepper, water and garnish
  1. Place the garlic into a small saucepan and cover with oil. Cook over low heat until the oil is barely simmering and the garlic is lightly browned and fork tender, 8-10 minutes. Do not overcook or the garlic will taste bitter.
  2. While the garlic is cooking, prepare the turkey. Slice into 1-inch pieces.
  3. Pound between 2 sheets of plastic wrap until thin, about ½ inch.
  4. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Lightly dredge in flour, shaking off any excess.
  6. Heat 1 tbsp. olive oil in a cast iron skillet. Cook the turkey over high heat, 3-4 minutes per side until cooked through. Cooking time will vary according to thickness of the meat.
  7. While the turkey is cooking, discard all but 2 tbsp. of the garlic-oil mixture.
  8. Mash garlic with a fork until it forms a thick paste. (You can also use a mini-blender). Add lemon juice, any pan juices, a pinch of salt and mix to incorporate.
  9. If the mixture is too thick, add some warm water until you have a sauce of your desired consistency.
  10. When the turkey is cooked, remove from heat. Pour garlic lemon sauce over the turkey, garnish with fresh herbs and serve immediately.
