Nonna’s Cutlets

INGREDIENTS: (serves 6)

  • 6 chicken breasts sliced ½ inch thick (can substitute pork or veal)
  • 2 eggs (sorry Anthony, not for you!)
  • 1 cup Panko bread ( not sure I don’t measure it)
  • ½ teaspoon grounded black pepper
  • ½ cup grated parmigiano cheese
  • oil for frying (high heat resistant like Canola oil)


Wash and pat dry chicken with paper towels, set aside.

In a bowl add panic bread, parmigiano, pepper, mix dry and set aside.

In a separate bowl crack open the edges, beat the eggs and set aside.

Place one chicken breast at a time onto the battered eggs wetting both sides, then into the bread both sides, proceed with same steps with the rest of the chicken.

Heat the pan adding ¾ inch of oil, when the oil is warm add chicken one chicken breast at time into the hot oil as many as you can fit into the pan, DO NOT OVER CROWD THE PAN.

Fry medium heat until golden brown, turn over the chicken and finish frying, repeat the same with all the pieces.


Marco's attempt. Not too shabby big guy!

    1. Nice work Marco. I attached a picture of your first attempt. What type of oil did you use? Olive oil does not hold up well to heat. If its too hot, it will smoke and burn. I will update the recipe once I know what type of oil you used.
