Crispy JD Farm's Turkey Breast, Caramelized Squash, and Pepper Agro Dolce

By Chef Deniz Tarakcioglu


  • 2 turkey breast, sliced in 1/2’’ slices
  • 100mL flour
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 150mL panko bread crumbs
  • 1lbs local squash, peeled and cut into large chunks
  • 50mL brown sugar
  • 30mL sherry vinegar
  • 30mL maple syrup
  • 1 white onions, sliced thinly
  • 3 assorted colour bell peppers
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 20mL ginger, minced
  • 1/2 bunch cilantro stems and leaves
  • 1 lemon, cut into wedges


  • Preheat your oven to 400F. Toss the squash in olive oil and brown sugar, roast until nicely caramelized and very soft around 35 minutes, keep warm. Sprinkle the turkey slices with kosher salt and rest for 5 minutes. Dip the turkey in flour, then in eggs, and finally panko bread crumbs.
  • In a large skillet heat up olive oil, sauté onions, peppers, garlic, ginger on high heat with a pinch of salt until caramelized on the edges. Add the squash and deglaze with sherry vinegar. Add the maple syrup and cilantro stems, reduce until sticky, correct seasoning.
  • In another pan heat up 1" vegetable oil to 350F. Fry the turkey cutlets until the internal temperature reads 150F, 4 minutes per side and golden brown.
  • Transfer on a wire rack and rest for 5 minutes. Serve with squash, peppers and lemon wedge
