We enjoyed this recipe including my 3 year old grandson. I used grated cheddar instead of parmesan, wasn't time for the dip so had it with salad instead and small boiled potatoes. Not enough coating so next time I will make extra.

Fairly quick and simple to make, and a very yummy result! The coating was was flavoursome and crisp, whilst the meat remained tender and moist. I didn't have the smoked paprika, so for a twist, I added fennel seeds and some chilli flakes. Served it with a generous side salad and the avocado dip. If you don't have weetabix, smashed up ryvita would work well I think.

This makes quite a lot of food, with no carbohydrate. It all tastes good - I made the avocado dip with lemon as I had no limes and it was a little bland. I think next time I'd have about 2/3 of the turkey, half the avocado dip and serve with rice or pitta. It worked well though and the weetabix coating was a nice change.

Made this for me and my partner last week as I have been looking for new inspiration for my diet and this was lovely and easy. I added some grilled chilli halloumi as well whereas my partner had wraps. Definitely bled the dip with a hand mixer though as I put mine in the Magimix and it wasn't as smooth as I would've liked. Making again this week!
