Kids love chicken nuggets from fast-food franchises, and adults on the run eat plenty of them as well. Here's the hunter's equivalent way to turn the breast of a wild turkey into delectable finger food (or a main dish) in a process which is easy and straightforward.
1 tablespoon water
1 pound wild turkey breast, cut into 1-inch strips
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup canola oil
Salt and black pepper to taste
Beat egg with water. Dredge turkey strips in flour, dip in egg mixture, then dip in the flour again. Fry in canola oil in a cast iron skillet until brown and tender. Season with salt and black pepper and serve immediately.
TIPS: If turkey is not tender, cover and steam a few minutes after you have browned the strips. Of course it is a good idea to pound the strips with a meat hammer before frying as well. Strips are great for dipping in honey-mustard or ranch dressing.
