  • 1 pound turkey tenderloin
  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • cup egg substitute
  • ¾ cup panko
  • 2 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • ½ teaspoon garlic pepper
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil


  • Preheat the oven to 425°F.
  • Halve the turkey tenderloin lengthwise, then slice it into 2-inch pieces. You should end up with about 20 pieces.
  • Place the flour on a medium-sized plate and the egg substitute in a shallow dish or pasta bowl. On another plate, combine the panko, Parmesan, and garlic pepper.
  • Dredge each piece of turkey in the flour, dip it into the egg substitute, then dredge it in the panko mixture.
  • Heat the oil in a nonstick frying pan.
  • Add a few of the turkey pieces to the pan at a time. Cook for about 2 minutes on each side, then transfer to a broiler pan.
  • Once all the turkey pieces are on the broiler pan, place in the oven and bake for 5 minutes.
  • Flip each piece of turkey, then bake another 5 minutes.


This recipe is for 4 servings. If you cut the turkey into 20 pieces, each serving will be 5 pieces.
Leftovers can be stored covered in the refrigerator for 3-4 days.
