In This Recipe


  1. Season chicken cutlets with salt and pepper. Place flour, eggs and Panko in three separate shallow bowls; season each with salt and pepper.
  2. Heat 4 tablespoons oil in a large skillet over medium until hot. Meanwhile, dredge cutlets in flour, dip in egg, and coat in Panko. Place chicken in skillet and cook (in batches, if necessary) until golden brown and cooked through, about 2 to 3 minutes per side. Transfer chicken to serving plates and return skillet to heat.
