I don't think there is a well known cut called a "turkey chop." Can you provide a photo or description of exactly what the chop you have is? – SAJ14SAJ Dec 17 '13 at 5:11
That link is going to a subscription page or something personalized to you. – SAJ14SAJ Dec 17 '13 at 14:37
Sorry, right link here: – samyb8 Dec 17 '13 at 14:47
@samyb8 That doesn't look like turkey. – derobert Dec 17 '13 at 14:55
Well, Amazon sells it like Turkey Chops: – samyb8 Dec 17 '13 at 15:04

These are sections of turkey leg (drumstick) cut as to appear like a non-halal/kosher bone-in cut of meat, like a pork chop. The flesh is turkey, and hence not as robust as pork - treat more like a veal or lamb chop in terms of cooking technique, but season like pork or poultry. Here is a thread on Chowhound discussing various ways to prepare and serve.
