Expert Tips

  • Turkey breast is a lean protein that supplies amino acids that give structure to the body in skin, cell membranes and muscles.
  • One pound of boneless skinless chicken breast halves can be used in place of the turkey breast slices in this recipe.
  • Garlic-pepper blend is a combination of garlic powder, salt and pepper. Look for the seasoning in the dry spices and herbs section of the grocery store. Or use 1/4 tsp garlic powder, 1/4 tsp salt and 1/8 tsp pepper in place of the garlic-pepper blend.
