3 tablespoons olive oil
1 small yellow onion, diced
1/2 bunch celery, thinly sliced
1 1/2 teaspoons fennel seeds
1/2 cup dry white wine
1 cup fresh cranberries
1/4 cup hand-torn flat-leaf parsley
1 tablespoon drained capers
1 to 2 tablespoons stevia extract
1 1/2 teaspoons freshly ground pink peppercorns
2 tablespoons unsalted butter

1/2 cup whole milk
2 cage-free organic eggs
1/2 cup panko breadcrumbs
1/2 cup almond flour
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
4 thick slices (6 ounces each) fully cooked turkey breast
2 tablespoons canola oil


To make the sauce: Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. Spread the fennel on a baking sheet, drizzle with 1 tablespoon of the olive oil, and bake until browned on the edges, about 6 minutes. Set aside to cool to room temperature.

In a large skillet, heat the remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the onions, celery, and fennel seeds and cook until the onions and celery are translucent, about 2 minutes.

To cook the paillards: In a shallow bowl, whisk together the milk and eggs to make egg wash. In another shallow bowl, combine the panko, flour, and Parmesan. Dip each piece of turkey in the egg wash, coating both sides, then dip into the breading mixture. Shake off any excess breading.

In a large skillet, heat the canola oil over medium-high heat. Add the turkey and paillard topped with 1/4 cup of the cranberry piccata sauce. You will have leftovers for another meal.

1 lemon, halved
1/2 bunch fresh thyme
1 teaspoon fine sea salt

Cover the bowl tightly with plastic wrap and steam for at least 20 minutes.
