Chicken Cutlets Italian Style...


I'm finally sharing a recipe that we eat here at 
Walking on Sunshine at least once a week.
If Michael had his way it would be every other day.

Chicken Cutlets Italian Style...



Start out with your chicken cutlets that you have cut in half.
Can you see how I did this...


Chicken cutlets sliced thin and ready to be POUNDED even thinner...


Place one chicken cutlet at a time on your cutting board,
I always put wax paper down first...


Cover the cutlet with another piece of wax paper and then pound GENTLY...


Beautiful, THIN chicken cutlets...


Dredge the chicken cutlets in egg and then in seasoned breadcrumbs.
Some people dredge their chicken cutlets in flour as well,
but I like only using breadcrumbs...


And then fry in a few tablespoons of oil...


Brown both sides.
But DON'T cook all the way through...




I used to cook the cutlets all the way through and they would 
come out tough and sometimes NOT cooked all the way.
It was hit or miss until I started baking them in the oven.

Drain the cutlets on a paper towel...




And then place your browned cutlets in a baking dish and bake them in
a 375 degree oven until done, maybe another 10 minutes...




I usually serve Olivia's Mac and Cheese along with a 
tossed salad as side dishes when chicken cutlets are on the menu.

Makes a PERFECT meal that your family will love!




Enjoy your day!

  16. Yum. Sometimes I add a little parm cheese and milk to the egg mixture. Also s & p. Really tasty. But I love the hint about not frying all the way and baking in the end. Can't wait to try this. Thanks.
