smear with cream cheese, sprinkle with chives, roll, wrap in bacon, dip in batter and deep fry.:p

seriously though, a chef salad (modified for taste) comes to mind, i really like them on a hot summer night.

lightly pan seared or grilled and served with roasted red peppers and grilled onions

turkey quesadillas - is cheese off limits?

turn into a filling for a pasta and serve with a nice marinara

ok, out of the off the top of my head stuff, good luck

Season with pepper and herbs, saute in olive oil. A dusting of flour is optional.

Low fat schnitzel time... lightly beat a couple of egg whites, dip slice into it, then coat lightly with dried breadcrumbs. Spray an oven tray with oil, put slices in, sprinkle some paprika on top, spray tops with oil, and cook in a moderate oven for about 10-12 minutes (depending how thin). There's very little fat, then once golden, sprinkle with lemon juice and serve with steamed veg. and/or fresh salad with fat free salad dressing.

Or cook it as a stir fry - slice into strips, little peanut oil into a hot wok, sliced garlic and ginger till its fragrant then add turkey just long enough to brown it slightly. Remove from wok onto a warm plate. Wipe out wok with paper towel.

Little bit more oil, add sliced vegies of your choice, starting with the hard ones, like carrot, onion, broccoli, baby corn, then start on softer ones like onion, bell peppers, mushrooms, till they're all done but still little crispy. Cut all veg in bite size pieces.

Add some low fat, low salt chicken stock mixed with some cornstarch, add turkey back in, stir fry short time till it thickens up. Add a dash of low salt soy.

Eat :)

Nice over boiled rice or vermicelli noodles, make it go further too, fill you up goodly!

Is the turkey breast raw or from the deli cooked?

I suggest you purchase a whole turkey breast and roast it in the oven.
