Chicken Cutlets are such a versatile recipe. Make them for a fast dinner recipe or for a sandwich. I love this quick and easy recipe!

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Cut each chicken breast lengthwise.
  2. Cover them with plastic wrap (or use a large plastic bag), and pound each of them down using a rolling pin until they are about 1/2″ thick.
  3. On a dinner plat mix together the flour, garlic powder, salt and pepper.
  4. Heat up 1/2 cup of olive oil in a large skillet set to medium high.
  5. To make sure the oil is hot enough throw a pinch of the flour mixture into the hot oil. If it sizzles it is ready to go!
  6.  Dredge two chicken cutlets into the flour mixture, and make sure the flour is covering the chicken on both sides.
  7.  Place two chicken cutlets into the hot oil at a time (If you have room you can do 3, but do not crowd the pan).
  8. Cook for 4 minutes, then flip the cutlet and cook another four minutes.
  9.  Continue this dredging and frying process for the remaining chicken cutlets.
  10. Enjoy!

Notes

*This recipe makes 6 chicken cutlets, but if you are cooking for a group I would make enough for each person to have two cutlet because they are so thin.
