Ingredients

  1. 2 teaspoons plus 1 tablespoon canola oil, divided
  2. 1/3 cup chopped red onion
  3. 2 cups sliced fresh or frozen rhubarb (thawed and drained, if frozen)
  4. 1/3 cup golden raisins
  5. 1/3 cup light brown sugar
  6. 1 tablespoon cider vinegar
  7. 2 teaspoons minced fresh ginger or 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  8. 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper, divided
  9. 4 turkey cutlets (about 1 pound), 1/4 inch thick
  10. 1/4 teaspoon salt

Preparation

  1. Heat 2 teaspoons oil in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and cook, stirring, until softened, about 3 minutes. Add rhubarb, raisins, brown sugar, vinegar, ginger and 1/8 teaspoon pepper; bring to a boil over medium-high and cook, stirring occasionally, until the rhubarb is soft and breaking down, 5 to 10 minutes more (it will take less time if using thawed frozen rhubarb). Remove from the heat and cover to keep warm.
  2. Sprinkle turkey on both sides with salt and the remaining 1/8 teaspoon pepper. Heat the remaining 1 tablespoon oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the turkey and cook until browned on both sides and just cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Serve the turkey with the chutney.
