Remove bones and skin from turkey breast. Trim as required.
Slice turkey breast into 4-ounce slices.

Prepare the marinade by combining buttermilk, thyme, parsley, garlic, cayenne and salt. Marinate the turkey for 1 to 2 hours.
Drain the turkey; dredge in flour and pat to set the flour onto the turkey.
Saute the turkey in the canola oil and butter. Cook through until the temperature reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees F. Remove to a warm oven, cover and hold for service.
