 In this recipe for Turkey Scaloppine Tarragon, tarragon combines with
 turkey breast, mushrooms and red pepper to create a fast and
 ultra-flavorful summer supper. The flavor is reminiscent of bearnaise
 sauce, minus the high-fat butter and egg yolks. Just 24 percent of the
 calories in this dish come from fat.
 The recipe starts with thin slices of skinless turkey called scaloppine.
 Scaloppine are often sold already sliced in packages in supermarkets, but
 if you don't see them, ask the meat cutter to prepare them for you. Ask for
 slices about a quarter-inch thick, cut against the grain. If the slices are
 too thick, pound them gently with a meat pounder or coffee mug. To minimize
 cleanup, pound the meat between two pieces of plastic wrap, then discard
 the plastic.
 If you are growing herbs, be sure to plant French tarragon and avoid
 Mexican tarragon. Mexican tarragon grows faster and spreads quickly, but
 lacks the pungent flavor of true French tarragon. 
 Note: The turkey should be sliced about 1/4-inch thick. If it is too thick,
 gently flatten each slice using a meat pounder or a heavy coffee mug.
 Combine the flour and salt on a flat dish. Dredge each slice of turkey in
 flour and shake off the excess; set aside. Heat 1 tablespoon of the olive
 oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add the mushrooms, red
 pepper and garlic and cook, stirring often, until the vegetables are soft.
 Remove from skillet and set aside. Add the remaining 1/2 tablespoon of
 olive oil to the skillet. Add the turkey slices and saute over medium high
 heat until both sides are golden brown. Return the mushroom mixture to the
 skillet and stir in the chicken broth, tarragon, lemon juice and
 blackpepper. Bring the mixture to a boil and quickly reduce heat to low to
 maintain a gentle simmer. Cook for 5 to 7 minutes, watching to prevent the
 liquid from boiling away. The sauce will thicken slightly. There should be
 about 5 tablespoons of liquid left in the pan.
 Serve each scaloppine with some of the vegetables and sauce. On the side,
 serve cooked rice, noodles or pasta, such as bowties or orechiette.
