Recipe courtesy Marcela Valladolid. Edited to add my review: This is a deliciously crispy Mexican chicken sandwich. The mayo makes it spicy and it's also important not to miss the toppings suggested. We made ours plain and it was not as flavorful as it was with the onions, avocados and tomaotes.

Directions

  1. Season the cutlets with salt and pepper, to taste. Put the flour in a dinner plate and season with salt and pepper. Put the bread crumbs in a second plate and the beaten eggs in a shallow bowl. Dip the cutlets into the flour, then the eggs and finally into the bread crumbs, pressing down on both sides so that the bread crumbs adhere to the meat.
  2. Heat 1/2-inch oil in a large skillet to 350 degrees F. Pan-fry the cutlets in batches until golden, about 2 to 3 minutes per side depending on the thickness. Set aside to drain on paper towels.
  3. To assemble the sandwiches, halve the rolls horizontally. Pull out the soft center of the slices and discard. Spread each roll evenly with the chipotle mayonnaise. Put the cutlets on the bottom halves of the rolls and top with lettuce, tomato, avocado, onion and jalapeno. Arrange the sandwiches on serving plates and garnish with lime wedges.
  4. Chipotle Mayonnaise:.
  5. In a small bowl mash together the chipotle chile, lime juice and mayonnaise. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
