Ground turkey gets a bad rap for being too dry once cooked, mainly because it has so little fat. I’ll admit that it’s easy to let that happen IF you don’t plan ahead and make sure to add other ingredients to help add some moisture to the mix.
This recipe is a twist on chicken parmesan using ground turkey and making them sliders as opposed to the traditional breaded, browned and baked chicken breast. The marinara sauce mixed in with the meat makes them nice and juicy, and the addition of the chopped fresh basil and crushed red pepper infuse a fresh, spicy flavor into the mild turkey meat.
This dish came together in less than 30 minutes and the serving platter was clean at the end of the meal which means I have another family favorite.
