    Baking Directions:

    Cut turkey breast diagonally into 1/2-inch-thick slices.

    Between sheets of plastic wrap, pound turkey to 1/8-inch thickness with meat mallet or rolling pin.

    Sprinkle with dash salt and dash pepper; press seasonings into turkey with fingers.

    In a small bowl, mix bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, parsley, 1 teaspoon salt and dash pepper.

    Add 1 tablespoon olive oil; work with fingers to moisten the crumbs lightly.

    Spread mixture on a dinner plate.

    Spread flour on another dinner plate.

    In shallow bowl or pie plate, beat eggs lightly with fork.

    Dip turkey slices into flour to coat both sides; shake off any excess flour.

    Dip into eggs, letting any excess drip back into bowl.

    Coat completely with bread crumb mixture, pressing crumbs in place; place on tray.

    Cover; refrigerate until ready to fry.

    Heat a 12-inch skillet over high heat.

    Add 1/4 inch of olive oil for frying; heat to almost smoking.

    Add as many turkey slices as skillet will hold; do not crowd.

    Turn slices; cook about 30 seconds longer.

    With tongs, remove turkey as each slice is done, allowing any excess oil to drain back into skillet; place on several thicknesses of paper towels.

    Repeat with the remaining turkey slices.
