Mima’s Chicken Cutlets…

Chicken Cutlets Please!

Prep time   20 minute      Cook time 20 – 30 minutes

4    boneless, skinless breast
1    egg
3/4 cup  lemon juice
1/2 cup  grated cheese
Bread crumbs
Combine lemon juice with egg in a bowl and beat.
 To begin with I use a sharp fillet knife; after removing trim lay breast side up and place your hand firmly on top. Slowly cut into the breast to make a fine cutlet. I usually get 4 – 6 pieces from each breast.
Place cutlets in egg/lemon mixture as you cut, in a separate bowl add cheese and parsley to bread crumbs. I prefer to let the cutlet set in the mixture a few minutes turning frequently; the meat will lighten as they soak. Lemon juice is an astringent which cleanses bacteria; and adds a fine taste.

 Next lightly coat with bread crumbs. If you prepare the cutlets ahead of time and place them in the refrigerator; I highly recommend removing them to room temperature before frying. In this way the cutlets won’t stick to the pan during frying.

Pre-heat skillet and oil, place cutlets in pan on medium heat; watch as the edges start to brown before turning. A folded paper towel placed on serving platter will soak up excess oil. 

For any amount of breast I always use 1 egg; should I have more than 4 breast, I add additional lemon juice. Some people garnish the finished cutlets with slices of fresh lemon, I prefer not, in case leftovers are used for another dinner;  Chicken Parma for example. 
 Leftovers are Awesome!
