Chicken Cutlets Blue Bloods Way


I’ve said it before, I’m a huge fan of “Blue Bloods” TV show 
and haven’t missed one episode. 

  
The Blue Bloods Cookbook  
is just as good!


It's filled with 120 great easy-to-make recipes to try, including:  Four Cheese Chicken Mac-and-Cheese,  Yankee Bean Soup, Rumaki, and Drugstore Chocolate Cake, you get the idea...

Bubba surprised me with the cookbook last Christmas, and here's this awesome recipe from it:   Chicken Cutlets ~ Bill and I thought it was an ideal delicious way to dress up chicken!

The chicken was great! I despise cooked carrots, Bill loves cooked carrots!

In case you don’t know, chicken cutlet is made from chicken breast.  A cutlet is the slice of meat cut from a chicken breast.  It’s generally thinner than the whole breast, enabling it to cook quicker.


Easy pan-seared breaded chicken cutlets is one of my favorite ways to make chicken.  Pounding chicken breasts to a uniform thickness cuts down on cooking time; once you do this, the variations are endless. 

Flour, egg wash, seasoned bread crumbs...

It’s not too fancy ~ just drag the meat through an egg wash, dredge them in bread crumbs seasoned with Parmesan, and oregano.  Finally, crisp the chicken in a little olive oil until golden brown.



These cutlets will take your chicken game to the next level.  It’s a quick-coking crowd-pleaser!


Chicken Cutlets
Printable recipe

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!

  9. Yes...Blue Bloods is a favorite of mine! I love how they sit down together for dinner each evening. I had to laugh just a bit when I read that you don't like cooked carrots. I just finished a small bowl of them. I'm with Bill...love me some cooked carrots.
