Chicken Cutlets (Baked, not Fried)

....2012....and so I set out to "healthify" some of my frequent recipes, & family favorites. Just a small change can make a big difference to your health. Not to mention how several small changes add up in a good way.

The family loves chicken cutlets. Fried of course. So, to try & cut back I used the exact same recipe, but baked them. They were quite good. Good enough to EAT THAT IS!!!!

Baked Chicken Cutlets


4 Chicken Breasts-cut horizontally into 2 pieces each

3 Eggs-beaten

1 cup Bread Crumbs-(I used Italian seasoned)

1 & ½ cups All Purpose Flour

1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese

½ teaspoon Oregano

Salt & Pepper

2 teaspoons melted Butter combined with 3 teaspoons olive oil.


Pre-heat oven to 400. Grease a flat baking sheet with sides, with olive oil.

Whisk eggs in a small bowl, add salt & pepper & set aside.

In a medium shallow bowl, combine dry ingredients, spices, and cheese. Mix well.

Soak each piece of chicken in egg, then dredge into flour-breadcrumb mixture. Pat each side so that the chicken is covered completed & forms a solid crust. Place on pan, & repeat.

With a pastry brush, brush each side of the chicken cutlets with the melted butter & olive oil mixture. Bake for 15 minutes, then flip each piece of chicken over. Bake for a remaining 10 minutes or until golden brown & crispy.
