Simple baked chicken cutlets are a healthier way to make your favorite breaded chicken recipes and you only need four ingredients and about 30 minutes for an incredible meal.
Sometimes I love complex recipes with lots of ingredients and steps and sometimes I like a simple recipe I can mix up lots of ways. This simple chicken cutlet recipe is one of those “keep up your sleeve” recipes that you can whip together in less than 30 minutes and personalize hundreds of ways. I have been known to add nuts, coconut, all types of herbs, and Parmesan to change up the base flavors. Meal wise – the options almost never end. Serve it on its own, as chicken Parmesan, as a crunchy component in a salad, with a simple pan sauce or gravy, in sandwiches, sliced in quesadillas, or dipped in any number of delicious condiments.
This is also one of those meals that I can make for my family and everyone is happy. My husband's favorite meal of all time is chicken milanesas, so he'll accept this as a healthier substitute. Plus every kid that I know loves breaded chicken. Everyone can add their own sauce - lemon juice for me, ketchup for everyone else - and we are all happy.
