Homemade Chicken Cutlets

Cutlets are a favorite in my house.  They are easy to make and accompanied with roasted cauliflower and sauteed broccolini you'll have a wonderful meal.  So what makes for a delicious cutlet?  Good quality free-range chicken breasts and the correct cooking time...and a few other ingredients which I've listed below.

Chicken Cutlets
3 Boneless breasts of chicken, trimmed and cut in half (for my local followers, Stop and Shop carries Nature's Promise split breasts in a bag which are all trimmed)
1 egg
1 cup of plain bread crumbs
Fresh parsley
2 tbsp Pecorino Romano Cheese
Salt and pepper
Olive oil

Trim and cut chicken breast in half. Pound breasts with a mallet until they are about 1/2 to 1/4 inch thick.

Place egg in shallow bowl and beat with a little water. Add chopped parsley.  Place breadcrumbs in another bowl, add the cheese and a little salt and pepper. Mix well.

Heat about a tbsp of olive oil in a heavy skillet. Begin by dipping the cutlet (both sides) into the egg and then the breadcrumbs.

When the oil is hot, place the cutlet in the pan and cook over medium heat for about 6-8 minutes on each side.


Place cutlets on a paper towel to absorb the excess oil.


Serve with roasted cauliflower and sauteed broccolini.  Enjoy!
