Italian Chicken Cutlets

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Marie

Originally found in a Southern Living cookbook, this is my favorite way to make boneless chicken breasts. You'll want to make extra because it tastes even better cold as leftovers or in a sandwich.

The last of my picks for "Pick Your Chef". Made these and used them for chicken sandwiches. They were easy to make, and the different seasonings gave them a really good flavor. The chicken stayed moist too. Served them on a sesame seed hamburger bun with sliced mozzarella and some marinara sauce...made a great chicken parmigiana sandwich!! YUM! I'll definitely make these again!
