Chicken Cutlets Italian Style is a recipe I grew up on.
Actually, I think every kid from Queens grew up on this recipe. We actually had chicken cutlets Italian style at least once or twice a week and then again if my mom made chicken Parmesan.
In fact whenever I make this recipe for chicken cutlets, I always try to make extra so we can have chicken Parmesan a few days later. Both recipes seem to go hand in hand.

I'm sharing a recipe that was originally posted awhile ago on the blog. This recipe for Chicken Cutlets Italian Style is a family favorite recipe. Add a side dish, a salad and you have an easy meal to serve to your family. My son, Michael, loves chicken this way and will usually request it when he is home from college.

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. They cook so much faster this way.
Brown both sides, but don't cook all the way through. We're going to finish cooking them in the oven.
Now, some people like to cook their chicken cutlets completely in the frying pan. But I like to only brown them and then continue cooking them in the oven. You'll get a much more tender chicken cutlet this way.
Once the cutlets are browned on both sides, drain them on a paper towel and then place them in a baking dish. Bake in a 375 degree oven until done, maybe another 10 to 12 minutes.
