Lime and Cilantro Grilled Turkey Cutlets Recipe

Grilled turkey cutlets, lime cilantro turkey, paleo turkey cutletsThis one one of the first recipes I made when I began “cooking” on my own after I left the nest. I was eating a lot of cheap Mexican in my college days, so that is probably where I got my inspiration.

It’s super basic, healthy and extremely delicious, which is an incredible combination; no wonder it’s the only recipe from my early 20s that remained in the rotation — pretzel keg and Ramen noodles no more (thank goodness).

While this recipe calls for turkey cutlets, this works great with pork or chicken as well. Serve with some cauliflower rice or veggies and eat up! Yum.
