Notes

  • The key to this quick fried chicken cutlet is to have a very thin chicken breast. Either buy them this way at the store or pound them out thing yourself.
  • I like the combination of vegetable oil and butter, but you can do all one or the other if needed.
  • Seasoned salt is super tasty but use regular salt if needed. To make your own seasoned salt, blend together salt, onion powder, garlic powder and a little chili powder.
  • These taste great along our Italian Green Bean Salad
