Tender Breaded Turkey Cutlets

"I came up with this thinking of a different way to serve the turkey breast. The sour cream seals in the moisture and no one would ever guess that it's in there. A great new way to try turkey. This is my husband's new favorite turkey dish."

I have never tried baking these but I never feel guilty about pan frying them since they are pan fried in just one tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil. The last time I made them (two days ago) ...

This was a great way to use left over turkey. I had very little sour cream, so I also added equal parts of mayo and dijon mustard - it was delicious.
