Sauteed Turkey Cutlets With Cranberry Orange Glaze

  Egg white 1 Large
  Salt 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Fine dry bread crumbs 1 Cup (16 tbs), seasoned with pepper
  Turkey cutlets 4 , pounded to 1/8-inch thickness between sheets of plastic wrap (1/4 Inch Thick)
  Cranberry juice 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Lightly packed brown sugar 2 Tablespoon
  Cider vinegar 2 Tablespoon
  Grated orange zest 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Vegetable oil 2 Cup (32 tbs) (For Frying)

In a bowl whisk the egg white and the salt until the mixture is frothy and have the bread crumbs ready in a shallow dish.
Dip the cutlets in the egg white, letting the excess drip off, coat them with the bread crumbs, patting the crumbs to make them adhere, and transfer the cutlets to a rack set on a baking sheet.
Chill the cutlets, uncovered, for 15 minutes.
While the cutlets are chilling, in a small saucepan boil the cranberry juice until it is reduced to about 1/2 cup, add the brown sugar and the vinegar, and boil the mixture until it is syrupy and reduced to about 3 tablespoons.
Stir in the zest and keep the glaze warm.
In a large heavy skillet heat 1/4 inch of the oil over moderately high heat until it is hot but not smoking and in it fry the cutlets in 2 batches, turning them once, for 1 1/2 minutes.
Transfer the cutlets to paper towels, let them drain, and divide them between plates.
Drizzle the cutlets with the glaze.
