What Part is a Chicken Cutlet?
Chicken cutlets are nothing more than boneless, skinless chicken breasts that have been sliced thin. Most often the cutlets are then pounded even thinner before cooking.
Chicken cutlets can be purchased in your grocery store, but they are pricier than boneless skinless chicken breasts. They’re also very easy to prepare in your own kitchen.
How to Make Thin Chicken Cutlets
Place a boneless, skinless chicken breasts on a cutting board that’s been lined with parchment paper. Using a sharp knife, slice the chicken breast down the side lengthwise cutting all the way through until until you have thin chicken cutlets.
Sometimes it helps to place the chicken breasts in the freezer for about 20 minutes before slicing.
