Chicken cutlets ROCK and they freeze well.
I use them has homemade chicken nuggets.
Much better than that frozen crap you buy in the freezer section.
This is one thing every single person in our family will eat without complaint.
The only time they complain is when I don't make mashed potatoes and gravy to go with it.
OK. Let's get started - what you will need:
(This is one of those recipes where I am guessing at the measurements!)
4-6 Boneless skinless chicken breast - sliced thin lengthwise (you can buy the thin sliced chicken breast or tenders, but I feel they are too expensive so I cut them thin myself.)
Your favorite paprika (I use smoked - thanks for sending it to me Lara!)
2-3 cups of flour
3-4 cups of your favorite bread crumbs
2-4 cups of vegetable oil
Slice your chicken breast lengthwise into 3 pieces and then pound the heck out of them with a meat mallet. (OK...maybe not the heck out of them, but pound them enough to help make them a little more tender:)
When tenderizing place a sheet of plastic wrap over of the chicken to keep chicken juice from splattering all over you.
Dredge chicken in flour.
Dip chicken in egg then coat with bread crumbs.
To make sure oil is hot enough drop a little flour into pan, if it sizzles you are good to go.
Add chicken one layer at a time like this:
To freeze: I let them cool first then I flash freeze them - I put them on a cookie sheet in a single layer, pop them in the freezer for 10 minutes and then put into a Ziploc bag to freeze.
(Flash freezing helps prevent things from sticking together.)
