This week on Cooking with Sensei, we’re continuing the 90 Day Challenge by creating a delicious and nutritious dish that’s perfect for spring. We’re making some beautiful turkey breast medallions and pairing them with a tasty blackberry sauce reduction. It sounds complicated but I promise you, it’s not. Let’s give it a try!

Cooking With Sensei – Turkey Breast Medallions with Blackberry Sauce


  • 1/2 cup of all purpose or whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup of cornmeal
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 3/4 teaspoon of chili powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 3/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon of salt
  • Pinch of black pepper
  • 1 pound of turkey breast, sliced into 2 ounce cutlets
  • 1.5 tablespoons of butter
  • Greens for garnishing

Sauce Ingredients

  • 1/2 cups of chicken stock
  • Drizzle of canola oil
  • 2 tablespoons of diced shallots
  • 1/4 cup of white wine
  • 1/2 cup crushed fresh blackberries 


  1. First things first, let’s start with sauce. In a small sauce pan bring the chicken stock to boil until it’s reduced by half.
  2. Combine all your dry ingredients in a bowl and set aside.
  3. Next drizzle some oil in a larger sauce pan over medium-high heat and sauté the shallots. Let those soften a little and then add the white wine.
  4. Crush or gently pulse the blackberries.
  5. Add the reduced chicken stock and crushed blackberries to the shallot wine mixture. Reduce sauce and set it aside keeping it warm.
  6. Pound out the turkey cutlets with a mallet.
  7. Dredge the 2 ounce turkey cutlets with the dry ingredient mixture.
  8. Heat up the butter on a pan and cook the turkey cutlets until they’re cooked all the way through.
  9. Lastly, serve the turkey medallions with the blackberry sauce. Feel free to add any greens you have laying around; I used broccoli. This should hit the spot…enjoy!


Sensei’s Tips

Spring is the perfect time to incorporate fruit into your dinners.

With the seasons changing, be sure to take advantage of all the delicious fruits that will be in season for spring and summer!

Blackberries are a great source of antioxidants.

Blackberries contain high levels of antioxidants which help people to fight against health conditions, such as cancer and heart disease.
