After a long day in high-school, my best friend's mother would sometimes make this for us. I remember it distinctly..... So off to college we went, and stayed in touch a little. (Even though her family moved to Chicago) Well, one day I found turkey cutlets in the freezer and didn't know what to do with them.... And then I remembered! I got on the phone and called Mrs. Kelly in Chicago to get the recipe. It has now become a staple meal in the Keehn household. Note: My girlfriend's mother did not use the stock in her recipe. But after many times of experimenting I have found that the lemon, wine, and caper combination is too tangy for some. The addition of the stock made it much more pleasing to the palate in my own opinion, and made for more sauce in the end as well!! Enjoy! --Mail me once you've tried it...I'll be curious to see if you enjoy this meal as much as I have. HamR4evR@aol.com
