There was a time that we prepared this dish weekly.  It was one of our favorite meals.   How did we lose sight of what was right in front of us? In life as in food, as much things change they can stay exactly the same.

1 pound turkey breast cutlets
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
2 teaspoons vegetable oil
Vegetable cooking spray
