What are Chicken Cutlets?
Chicken cutlets are a type of poultry dish typically made from boneless, thinly-sliced chicken breast. They can be cooked in a variety of ways, including frying, grilling, and baking.
Chicken cutlets are a popular option for quick and easy weeknight meals. They are often served with simple sides, such as steamed vegetables or roasted potatoes. When cooked correctly, chicken cutlets are moist and flavorful. When overcooked, however, they can become dry and tough.
As such, it is important to watch carefully when cooking chicken cutlets and to use a meat thermometer to ensure they reach the proper internal temperature. Chicken cutlets are a versatile dish that can be enjoyed by both adults and children alike.
Tips for making thin chicken cutlets
Chicken cutlets can be served plain, with a sauce, or even used in sandwiches or salads. However, if they're not thinly enough, chicken cutlets can be tough and chewy. Here are a few tips for making thin chicken cutlets:
- Use boneless, skinless chicken breasts. If using chicken breasts with the bone and skin still attached, remove them before pounding the meat.
- Place the chicken between two pieces of plastic wrap or parchment paper before pounding it with a mallet or rolling pin. This will help to prevent the chicken from tearing.
- Start in the middle of the chicken breast and work your way outwards, pounding until the meat is about ¼-inch thick. Be sure to pound evenly so that the cutlets cook evenly.
What to serve with chicken cutlets?
To keep it simple, pair chicken cutlets with roasted potatoes and steamed broccoli. Try quinoa or brown rice instead of white potatoes. To add some color to the plate, air fryer sweet potatoes, carrots, or Brussels sprouts would be lovely alongside any chicken cutlet recipe.
If you're in the mood for a starchy side, roasted baby Yukon gold potatoes are hard to beat. And for something lighter, a salad of mixed greens topped with cherry tomatoes and sliced almonds would be a delicious option. Don't forget to try my homemade Italian salad dressing to go along with it.
Top Recipe Tip
Because chicken cutlets are thin, they cook fast, so don't overcook. They should be cooked to an internal temperature of 165°F. Use a digital meat thermometer to check that they are cooked through, but still juicy.
By following these simple tips, you can easily make thin and delicious thin sliced chicken breasts that everyone will enjoy.
