1 1/2 starch, 3 lean meat
1/4 cup all-purpose flour and 2 teaspoons all-purpose flour, divided use
1 1/2 teaspoons salt-free all-purpose seasoning blend
2 large egg whites
1/4 cup fat-free milk
1/2 cup plain dry bread crumbs (lowest sodium available)
4 turkey breast cutlets (about 4 ounces each), all visible fat discardedOR
1 pound boneless, skinless turkey breast, cut crosswise into 4 slices, cutlets, or slices flattened to 1/2-inch thickness
1 tablespoon canola or corn oil
1/4 cup fat-free half-and-half
1/3 cup fat-free, low-sodium chicken broth
1/8 teaspoon pepper
In a medium shallow dish, stir together 1/4 cup flour and the seasoning blend. In a separate medium shallow dish, whisk the egg whites until foamy. Whisk in the milk. Put the bread crumbs in a third medium shallow dish. Set the dishes and a large plate in a row, assembly-line fashion.
Dip the turkey in the flour mixture, then in the egg white mixture, and finally in the bread crumbs, turning to coat at each step and gently shaking off any excess. Using your fingertips, gently press the coating so it adheres to the turkey. Transfer to the plate. Sprinkle any remaining bread crumb mixture over the turkey. Lightly spray both sides with cooking spray.
In a large nonstick skillet, heat the oil over medium-high heat, swirling to coat the bottom. Cook the turkey for 4 minutes on each side, or until no longer pink in the center. Transfer to serving plates, leaving any pan drippings in the skillet. Reduce the heat to medium.
Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk together the half-and-half and the remaining 2 teaspoons flour (the mixture may be slightly lumpy). Whisk in the broth and pepper. Whisk into the pan drippings, scraping to dislodge any browned bits. Cook for 1 minute, whisking constantly. Spoon the gravy over the turkey.
