What a terrific dish, these cutlets. I followed this great recipe from start to finish only changing up to small things, 1) I used chicken cutlets (pounded a bit) 2) I heated the sauce in saucepan (by accident - didn't read the recipe close enough) but caught it quickly so it had only just warmed a bit, and was able to spoon over the sauce (slightly warmed) over the chicken.I also baked the chicken with the breadcrumbs and this was just outstanding. I will be making this tomorrow, as this is so good, I can't imagine a day without it now! The jalapeno heat spice was not at all *hot* but rather cooled off by the low fat mayo & sour cream. The lemon juice gave this a bit of citrus type taste that just went perfectly! Thank you so much Shelby jo! Made for *SSC Pet Parade*
