Since we’re on the health kick, I’m on a mission to purchase all lean meats for dinner.  But in all fairness, there’s only so much chicken you can cook before you feel like you’re going to turn into a chicken.  I happened to pass by some turkey breasts in the grocery store and figured I’d give it a try.  To be honest, I actually hadn’t cooked turkey breasts before.

How hard could it be?  Luckily, not hard at all. This recipe is incredibly easy and best of all… super delicious.

Ingredients: 

  • 1 pound non-fat turkey breasts
  • 2 green onions (scallions)
  • Juice of half of a lemon
  • 2 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds
  • Olive oil
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Crushed red pepper

Directions: 

Chop the green onions (scallions) and cut open a lemon.  Remove the seeds of half of the lemon and save the other half.

Saute the chopped green onions in a non-stick pan with a drizzle of olive oil for about 2-3 minutes.

Place the turkey breasts flat in the pan. Season with salt, pepper, and crushed red pepper to taste.  Let cook for 3-4 minutes.  Do not touch them until the 3-4 minutes are up.

Next, flip each piece over and season with salt, pepper, and crushed red pepper.  Squeeze in the juice of half a lemon.   Let cook for another 3-4 minutes or so.  The thinner the breasts, the quicker they’ll cook.  So be careful not to over-cook.

That’s it.  Simple as that.  See, healthy eating can still be yummy!
