Easy Baked Breaded Chicken Cutlets Recipe
- 3 whole boneless and skinless chicken breasts, halved
- all-purpose flour
- 2 large eggs, beaten
- 1 teaspoon water
- 1/4 pound (120 g) unsalted butter
- 2 cups soft fresh bread crumbs
- lemon wedges and fresh parsley for garnish
- salt and freshly ground black pepper
Place each breast half between pieces of wax paper and pound thin with the flat side of a heavy knife. Sprinkle the chicken with salt and pepper and dredge in flour.
Combine the eggs with the water and beat lightly with a fork. Dip seasoned chicken into the egg mixture., then dredge it into the breadcrumbs.
Pound lightly with the flat side of a knife to make crumbs adhere. Place the breaded chicken on a rack and dry briefly in the refrigerator so crumbs will adhere.
Melt the butter in a large skillet and cook the chicken over moderate heat until it is golden brown on all sides. If the chicken breasts are thin, further cooking will not be necessary. If they are relatively thick, place them in a preheated 350 °F oven for 5-10 minutes. Serve breaded chicken breasts hot, garnished with lemon wedges and parsley.
