The easiest way to make breaded chicken cutlets - no multi-step breading process and no standing over a sizzling pan!
Ingredients
  • boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • salt and pepper
  • mayonnaise
  • panko bread crumbs
  • grated parmesan cheese
  • extra virgin olive oil
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 400ยบ.
  2. Trim excess fat from the chicken breasts then slice each breast in half crosswise to yield two thin slices from each breast (thin slices help the chicken to cook quickly). Cut again lengthwise if you prefer smaller, chicken-finger-sized pieces (I usually do this when feeding children).
  3. Lay the chicken pieces on a baking sheet, season with salt and pepper, and spread each piece with some mayonnaise. The amount will vary but usually about a tablespoon per piece is sufficient - you want a moderately thick layer of the mayo. Next, sprinkle panko on top of the mayonnaise (enough to cover the mayo pretty completely) followed by a dusting of parmesan cheese. Drizzle the tops with olive oil and place the baking sheet in the oven.
  4. Bake about 15 minutes until the chicken is cooked through and no longer pink in the middle.
