Honey, pepper give turkey dish a kick

Sweet and tangy honey mustard with a hot pepper kick forms a thick glaze over broiled turkey breasts for this healthy 10-minute dinner. Broken pecan pieces add flavor and crunch.

Thin turkey cutlets take only a few minutes to cook. You can shorten the cooking time even more by using cooked boneless, skinless turkey breasts. They only need to go under the broiler for 2 minutes to warm through; then add the honey mustard glaze for 1 minute.
