This marks my 100th post! I only just realized this and would have loved to do something extra special, but I recently had surgery and it’s just not possible. So, I switched things around to give you all a great, easy meal to make for dinner! Happy 100th post to myself. I hope you all stick around for another 100!

I love meals like this. It’s quick enough to make during the week and good enough that if you serve it to guests they’ll think you really put in some effort in the kitchen! If you ever have an impromptu gathering whip up this meal, it’s sure to impress. It presents well, has a nice fresh taste and uses ingredients that you probably already have in your pantry!

Season cutlets with salt and pepper,then dust with flour.Coat a saute pan with nonstick spray, add 2 Tbsp. vegetable oil (important to use an oil that has no flavor) and heat over medium-high.

Saute cutlets on both sides. Transfer to a platter; pour off fat from pan.

Deglaze with vodka (AWAY FROM FLAME); cook until nearly evaporated. Add broth and lemon juice. Return cutlets to pan and cook on each side for 1 minute. Transfer cutlets to a warm plate.

Finish sauce with tomatoes and cream. Heat through, then pour over the cutlets.

Garnish with scallions.
