I like eating turkey and not just at the holiday celebrations.  Buying turkey breasts is one way to eat turkey without cooking a whole bird.  Other cuts including ground turkey provides some variety.   The following recipe is easy to make and doesn't require unique ingredients.  I could have sliced the meat more thinly that what is shown in the photo here.  This recipe can be made with either turkey or chicken breasts.  If you like the taste of lemon, you will enjoy this dish.

1 lb turkey or chicken breasts
1/2 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp rosemary
1/2 tsp oregano
3 tbsp oil
3 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp butter

Thinly slice the turkey or chicken breasts.  Place in a shallow dish or a zip lock bag.  In a small bowl, mix the remaining ingredients except for the butter.  Pour the mixture over the turkey and ensure that the meat is coated.  Let stand for 5 minutes at room temperature.  Heat a large frying pan with the butter and saute the meat on medium heat for 10 minutes.  Serve with rice, couscous or quinoa.  Makes about 3 to 4 servings.
