CHICKEN CUTLETS


Recipe courtesy of Pam's Midwest Kitchen Korner

Ingredients:

4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 cup flour
3 large eggs
1½ cups bread crumbs
¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese
¼ teaspoon dried oregano
¼ cup olive oil

Method:
Sandwich each chicken breast between two sheets of heavy-duty wax paper.
Using a kitchen mallet or the bottom of a cast-iron pan, pound the breasts until they are each about ¼ inch thick.
Season each cutlet with salt and pepper.
Set up a breading station: 
Put the flour in one shallow dish.
Beat eggs with a teaspoon of water and put them into a second shallow dish.
Mix the bread crumbs, Parmesan and oregano in a third shallow dish.
Dredge a cutlet in flour and shake off excess.
Dunk it in the egg until it is well coated and let excess drip off.
Press it into bread crumbs all around, so that it’s coated on both sides.
Shake off excess and transfer the cutlet to a clean plate.
Repeat with remaining cutlets.
In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat.
Cook cutlets until golden brown and cooked through, about 5 minutes per side.
Work in batches, if necessary, to avoid overcrowding the skillet, and add more oil if needed.
Transfer to platter and serve.



Enjoy!
