Recipe: Easy & Healthy Breaded Chicken Cutlets

Aug 9

Being on vacation gives this mommy a nice break from cooking and standing in the kitchen (for what feels like) all day. It also gives me a break from cleaning the kitchen each night. But do admit it’s nice to return home to make our family healthy, home-cooked meals again.
This week I made a favorite and thought I’d share the recipe with you – breaded chicken cutlets.
These are super easy and can be spruced up with any flavors you enjoy. I make ours on the simple side because I have 3 little mouths that can’t handle too many spices or heat.
Here’s the few ingredients you will need….
First, wash and pat dry the chicken cutlets. Then, in one bowl, crack 3 eggs and add a bit of milk – any kind of milk you like. I used 2% because that’s what was available. Beat the eggs and milk together…

In another bowl add plain bread crumbs. In the final bowl add flour, seasoned with a bit of salt and pepper…

Working with one piece of chicken at a time, start by flouring the cutlet on both sides…

Shake the cutlet lightly to remove any excess flour and coat it with the egg mixture on both sides…

Let excess egg drip off…

Finally, coat with the bread crumbs…

Some have suggested using one hand for the wet ingredient and one hand for the dry. I’ve tried several ways. No matter which way, it seems your fingers are going to get messy. Just make sure you start with clean hands and wash again really well after you’re done breading the chicken…

Place the cutlet on a plate…

Then follow that process until you’re done with all of the chicken…

In a skillet, melt the olive oil and butter together over medium heat…
You’ll know it’s ready when you see little bubbles on the surface…
Because we like thin cutlets, these cook quickly. Be sure to keep an eye on them and not overcook…
Beautiful!…

The local fresh market had zuchini on sale and thought this would be the perfect side dish…

There are many ways to make zuchini, but this is the easiest and quickest method. Just cut them in thin circles…

And cook in a little butter and olive oil, seasoned with salt and pepper, until just starting to soften. Be careful not to overcook or they get mushy…

Breaded chicken, sautéed zuchini and rice pilaf…

Delicious and healthy!

    Sounds delicious. I make basically the same thing with powdered parmesan cheese added in with the flour. Yum!
