Coconut Quinoa Crusted Turkey Sliders With Apple Slaw

Coconut Quinoa Crusted Turkey Sliders With Apple Slaw Prep time: 15 mins Cook time: 25 mins Serves: 4


  • 3 - fresh thinly sliced turkey cutlets
  • 1/2 cup - quinoa flakes
  • 1/2 cup - unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 2 - eggs
  • 2 - radishes
  • 1 - granny smith apple
  • 1 TBSP - hoisin sauce
  • 2 TBSP - apple cider vinegar
  • 1 TSP - dijon mustard
  • 1 TBSP - chopped basil
  • Sea salt and pepper
  • 1 - package whole wheat slider buns (thin)


  1. 1 Preheat the oven to 375F
  2. 2 Prepare to dredge the turkey. In a bowl, scramble egg and add 1 tablespoon of water along with salt and pepper. In a separate bowl, combine quinoa flakes and shredded coconut. Dredge the turkey slices in the egg mixture, and then bread with the flakes and coconut. Lay into a non-stick baking dish. The cutlets shouldn’t stick, but you may choose to add 1 tablespoon of olive oil to the dish to be sure.
  3. 3 Bake the turkey cutlets for 25 minutes, or until cooked all the way through. After 15 minutes, flip each piece, and move to a higher spot in the oven to brown the edges. You can also turn the broiler on, but don’t let the cutlets sit under the broiler for more than a couple of minutes.
  4. 4 While the cutlets are baking, make the apple slaw. Thinly slice apple and radish into matchsticks. Combine vinegar and Dijon in a bowl then mix in salt, pepper, apple, radish and basil. Set aside.
  5. 5 Toast whole-wheat buns. When ready to serve, add a small amount of Hoisin sauce to one side of the bun, then top turkey with apple slaw mixture.


Depending on how many guests you have, you may choose to stack slices of turkey cutlets, to create a more substantial portion and add a bit of drama.
Make Ahead:
The apple slaw mixture can be made up to 1 day in advance and refrigerated.
If you can’t find quinoa flakes, you can use a gluten free flour, or oats (just not instant oats). You could also serve the turkey with lettuce wraps for a gluten-free dish.
