  • Step 1

    Melt butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and cook, stirring, until soft but not brown, about 3 minutes.
  • Step 2

    Add peas, water and salt, and bring to a simmer. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover skillet and simmer just until tender, about 3 minutes. Stir in the lemon zest and set aside.
  • Step 3

    Sprinkle the flour on a large plate and season with salt and pepper.
  • Step 4

    Dredge turkey in flour. Shake off the excess flour. Set aside.
  • Step 5

    In a large skillet over medium heat, heat olive oil and a teaspoon of butter. Once hot, add the turkey and cook, browning on each side, about 2 minutes total. Remove to a clean plate.
  • Step 6

    Cook turkey in batches, adding more butter as necessary.
  • Step 7

    Once all turkey is cooked, lower the heat and add wine and lemon slices to the skillet. Deglaze the pan and simmer until slightly reduced, about 2 minutes. Add any remaining butter and the turkey, coating each piece with the pan sauce.
  • Step 8

    Place turkey on a clean platter, sprinkle with parsley, season to taste with pepper, and serve with peas and roast potatoes. Garnish with capers if desired.
