Breaded Chicken Cutlets

Everyone loves breaded cutlets: Cut them into strips for children, and offer a simple dipping sauce. Make a quick relish for the adults.

  • prep: 25 mins
    total time: 25 mins
  • servings: 4

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • Coarse salt and pepper
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup plain dried breadcrumbs
  • 8 (1 1/2 pounds) chicken cutlets
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • Olive Relish

Directions

  1. Step 1

    For the Kids (Serves 2): In a small bowl, combine ketchup and mayonnaise; set sauce aside. In a shallow dish, combine flour with a pinch of salt. In another dish, whisk together egg, 1 tablespoon water, and a pinch of salt. In a third dish, stir together breadcrumbs, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper.

  2. Step 2

    Working with one at a time, dredge cutlets in the flour to coat completely, then shake off excess flour. Dip the floured chicken in the egg mixture, turning to coat completely. Let excess drip off. Place cutlet in the breadcrumb mixture, patting it in and turning to coat both sides. Shake off any excess crumbs before proceeding.

  3. Step 3

    In a large nonstick skillet, heat 2 tablespoons oil over medium; swirl to coat. Add 4 cutlets; cook until golden brown and no longer pink in the center, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Remove. Repeat with remaining oil and chicken. Cut half the cutlets into strips; serve with sauce.

  4. Step 4

    For the Adults (Serves 2): Serve remaining cutlets with Olive Relish.

    Where's the Kids' sauce that was demonstrated on the show? How about the Chicken fingers?

    I think this is the side dish:

    Happy cooking.

    carabau,
    I think you refer to the side dish as having grape (or cherry) tomatoes, not the olive relish. Although not linked here, likely the side dish recipe is on the MS site. Ingredients look like small grape or cherry tomatoes (as you mentioned), sweet yellow pepper, and zucchini all roasted or sauteed in olive oil. Nice side dish--quick, simple, inexpensive to make, and has lively flavor.
    Hopes this helps. May your kitchen be filled with good food and dear friends.

    carabau, what you see is not grapes but green olives. Click on the words Olive Relish (highlighted in blue) to see the recipe.

    why do you always have these reports say Report as Inappropriate. Putting garlic in breadcrumbs seems like a good idea to me????????

    This is an old standby for our family except I use seasoned breadcrumbs instead of plain. Also really good if you shake some garlic powder into the breadcrumbs.
