Method

  1. Fry the pieces of turkey breast in hot oil, until brown.
  2. Remove from the pan and reserve.
  3. Lightly fry the onion, garlic, peppers and parsley, season, then add the soy sauce and the sugar.
  4. Allow to cook for about 10 minutes.
  5. Push the sauce through a chinois or blend in a liquidiser or food processor. If you are tired or feeling lazy, you can omit this step.
  6. If the sauce is very thick you can add some vegetable broth or water.
  7. Return the sauce to the pan, add the turkey and cook over a low-medium heat for about 20 minutes.

Serving suggestions

Serve with baked potatoes, salad or cooked vegetables.

Variations

This would work equally well with chicken. If you do not have Piquillo peppers, you will need to roast an ordinary red one, preferably the kind that is conical, rather than bell-shaped. Instructions for doing so are to be found here.

Chef's notes

The garlic quantity is unspecified and really does depend on how much garlic you like. The 'norm' would be about 4 plumb cloves. Personally I like to use about half to one whole bulb per person, ie. 2-4 bulbs for four servings.
