Serves: 2-4
Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 10 minutes


  • 2 cups bread crumbs (I use Old London plain bread crumbs)

  • 1 tablespoon onion powder
  • 2 pounds turkey breast, cut into strips
  • Canola oil for frying


  1. Preheat oil to 375 degrees.
  2. Place the bread crumbs in a shallow bowl or on a plate.
  3. In another bowl, whisk the eggs with the garlic and onion powder.
  4. Dip fillets in eggs, then coat with crumb mixture.

  6. Fry for 3 minutes on each side or until fish flakes easily with a fork and is a deep golden brown.
