Serves: 4


  • 1 1⁄4 lbs. boneless, skinless turkey breast, sliced thinly
  • 1 cup gluten-free cornbread crumbs
  • 1 cup Parmesan cheese, divided
  • 1 cup corn flour
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1⁄2 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 cups tomato sauce
  • 1⁄2 lb. whole-milk mozzarella, shredded or thinly sliced


  • Flatten the turkey breast with a meat pounder. Cut into 4 serving pieces.
  • In a shallow bowl, mix the cornbread crumbs with 1⁄2 cup Parmesan cheese. In another bowl combine the flour with the salt and pepper. In a third bowl add the beaten egg. Dip the turkey in the flour, then in the egg, and finally in the crumb mixture.
  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • In a deep skillet, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Add the turkey pieces and fry in the oil until golden brown; drain on paper towels.
  • Treat a baking dish with gluten-free nonstick spray. Pour a little tomato sauce into the baking dish. Add the turkey pieces. Sprinkle with remaining 1⁄2 cup Parmesan cheese. Cover with remaining tomato sauce. Spread the mozzarella over the top.
  • Bake in oven until hot and bubbling, about 20 minutes. Serve hot.
