How to make chicken cutlets – Best Tips & Tricks
1. How to cut chicken cutlets
I made these baked parmesan chicken cutlets with chicken breast but the same method applies if you make it with thighs.
So if you have a large cut slice it in half, lengthways. The pieces of breast that I used were quite small, so there was no need to slice them. Then pound the slices lightly, with a mallet, until they get to an even thickness of 1/4inch, or 0.5cm.
This will help them cook evenly and at the same time.
Next, you’ll need to season the chicken cutlets.
2. How to season chicken cutlets
As you can see in my baked chicken cutlets recipe video, I melted butter and seasoned it with salt, pepper and garlic powder and that was incredibly flavorful. You’d have to lightly coat the cutlets in this butter mixture and shake off any excess.
Then you have to place the parmesan chicken cutlets into the dry mixture, which is made of almond flour, grated parmesan, smoked paprika, and Italian seasoning.
Press gently to coat them evenly on all sides.
Next, you’ll need to bake the parmesan chicken cutlets.
3. How to bake chicken cutlets
First, preheat the oven 15 minutes before baking. This step is very important and most people often forget about it.
If you start baking in the cold oven, it will take more time to cook and the parmesan chicken cutlets will not get cooked evenly because the temperature hasn’t built up. Furthermore, the oven won’t have the necessary power to cook the food at first and when it will, it can burn the whole dish.
So if you want to make the best chicken cutlets recipe, make sure you preheat the oven 15 minutes before baking, ok?!
Bear in mind that the best temperature to bake chicken cutlets is 375F/190C.
Second, line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Then place the coated chicken on the prepared baking sheet.
Make sure you don’t overcrowd the pan, so leave some space between the parmesan chicken cutlets.
Place the pan into the oven and let it bake according to the recipe directions. If the breasts are pounded to an even thickness, about 1/4inch (0.5cm), then 15-20 minutes should be enough.
Now let’s see what other ways are there to cook these easy chicken cutlets.
4. Other ways to cook chicken cutlets
There are different ways to cook chicken cutlets. The easiest is in the oven as I did for this baked chicken cutlets recipe.
But you can also cook them in a large skillet over the stovetop.
If you want to use this method, I would suggest you dip them in beaten eggs instead of the butter mixture. That’s because the butter mixture is already quite fat and since you’ll be adding oil to the pan, it will get even fatter.
After coating them in beaten eggs and parmesan mixture, pour some oil into a large heavy skillet (fill it about 1/4inch / 0.5cm) and heat it over medium-high heat.
Once heated, add the parmesan chicken cutlets and cook until golden brown on both sides (about 3-4min per side). Note that you might need to cook in batches so you don’t overcrowd the pan.
5. What to serve with chicken cutlets
If you want to keep this recipe Keto, then a chopped or greens salad (like the asparagus salad) would go perfectly with these baked chicken cutlets.
