I really enjoy this dish with green beans or spinach salad. Almonds and these green veggies are always a winning combination. The almonds crisp up so the texture is a bit crunchy while the tenders are, well just so tender and juicy.


3/4 cup (50 mL) buttermilk
1 Tbsp (15 mL) hot sauce
1 Tbsp (15 mL) salt, divided
4 boneless, skinless Hayter’s Turkey Fillets, about 2 lbs/900 g
1/2 cup (125 mL) fresh breadcrumbs
1/2 cup (125 mL) sliced almonds
1/2 cup (125 mL) grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup (50 mL) chopped parsley
2 tbsp (25 mL) vegetable oil

Method of Preparation

In shallow dish (pie plate), whisk together buttermilk, hot sauce and ½ tsp (2 mL) of the salt. Place turkey in mixture for at least 10 minutes and up to one day.

In separate shallow dish, combine breadcrumbs, almonds, Parmesan, remaining salt and parsley.

Shake excess buttermilk from the turkey fillets and dredge in the almond mixture pressing gently until completely coated with mixture.

In large oven proof, non-stick skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Cook turkey until well browned on the bottom, about 2 minutes. Gently flip over and transfer to 400°F (200°C) oven until turkey is cooked through and top is golden, about 10 minutes. Minimum internal temperature is 165F/74C.


To make your own buttermilk, put  1 Tbsp vinegar or lemon juice  in measuring cup and fill with milk to just under 1 cup. Stir and let sit for 10 minutes.
