directions

  • Clean breasts of visible fat and tendons. Pound each with the flat side of a mallet until evenly 1/4 inch thick. (You may want to cut large cutlets in half).
  • Mix breadcrumbs in flat bowl with cheese and parsley.
  • Mix flour in another flat bowl with salt, pepper and garlic powder.
  • Beat egg and water in another flat bowl.
  • Dredge each piece in flour, then egg, then dip in egg and coat with breadcrumbs. Set on a piece of wax paper for 5 minutes to let breading adhere.
  • Heat olive oil in pan over medium heat. Add chicken cutlets and cook about 4 minute per side until nicely browned.

    Instead of doing on the stove top for 4 mins a side. Can I cook it into the oven? If so is 350 at 20-25 mins ok?

    You say, "Beat egg and water in another flat bowl." but no where in your ingredient list do I see how much water! Please advise and update! Thank you!

    I almost burned my little cutlets. Pepper, my cockatiel, laughed at my efforts. I was later offered a cockatiel leg of peace. Excellent!
