Turkey Schnitzel with Cherry Relish

This was really good and I had to share it with you. I have search all over for the link to the ACTUAL recipe, but I cannot find it... But, here are a ton of similar recipes.

I found this recipe card in the November issue of Saveur. As usual, I did not follow the recipe exactly. I don't usually...unless it is Paula Deen :)  So, here is my version based on the one I found.

Turkey Schnitzel with Cherry Relish

6 oz package of dried cherries
1 cup of water
5 tbsp butter
1 sweet onion, diced
2 tbsp sherry vinegar
1 tbsp brown sugar
4 pieces turkey breast (I bought a package of 2 pieces turkey breast + tenderloin to give me 4. They were huge!)
1 cup flour
2 eggs
2 cups Italian breadcrumbs (you can use any kind, this is just the seasoned one I typically get)
4 tbsp olive oil
S&P to taste

1. Heat oven to 400. Heat 1 tbsp butter in small saucepan. Add onion and cook for about 5 mins. Add cherries, 1 cup water, sherry vinegar, and brown sugar. Bring to boil and cook for 2 minutes. Set to low heat until ready to serve. 

2. Grab 3 bowls: 1 for flour, 1 for eggs, and 1 for breadcrumbs. Dredge each piece of turkey into the flour, then egg, then breadcrumbs. Place in baking dish with the 4 tbsp of olive oil and 4 tbsp butter. Bake for 40-45 minutes.

3. Serve with salad or fresh veggies and biscuits. Enjoy!

Now the recipe asked for, in my opinion, WAY too much butter and olive oil. I cut those 2 ingredients in half. Also, the directions were to cook in skillet. I baked it in the stove.

Do you follow directions word for word or do you change up recipes?
