Number of Servings: 4


    • 1 tablespoon olive oil
    • 1/3 cup finely chopped onion
    • 1 1/4 cups low-sodium chicken broth
    • 3 tablespoons chopped parsley
    • 1 5.7-ounce package couscous
    • 4 4-ounce turkey cutlets
    • Salt
    • Freshly ground black pepper
    • 2 1/2 cups broccoli florets
    • 2 tablespoons water
    • 3/4 cup white wine
    • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lime juice
    • 2 tablespoons minced garlic
    • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter



Heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and cook for 4 or 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the onion has softened and lightly browned.
In a medium saucepan over high heat, combine the chicken broth, parsley and about one-third of the sauteed onion and bring to a boil. Add the couscous, cover and remove from the heat. Let the couscous sit for 5 minutes and then fluff with a fork. Re-cover and set aside.
Use a slotted spoon to remove the remaining onion from the skillet (leaving the oil in the skillet), and set aside. Pat the turkey dry and season with salt and pepper to taste. Heat the skillet on medium heat and add the turkey. Cook for about 3 to 4 minutes on each side, until no pink remains. Transfer to a plate and cover loosely with aluminum foil to keep warm.
Combine the broccoli and water in a microwave-safe dish. Cover and microwave on high for 4 minutes, until tender. Set aside.
While the broccoli is cooking, add the wine, lime juice, garlic and the remaining sauteed onion to the skillet; increase the heat to medium-high. Bring to a boil and cook for 3 minutes. Add the butter and stir until it has melted, then return the turkey to the skillet, along with any accumulated juices, and return the sauce to a boil to reheat the turkey, turning the turkey once to coat it in the sauce.
Divide the turkey, couscous and broccoli among individual plates, pour the sauce over each portion, and serve immediately.
