Yeah, you read correctly.
Who doesn’t like chicken cutlets? Nobody. On a plate or a sandwich… they’re awesome.
I grew up on them, mom made them probably once every two weeks. Usually with Rice-A-Roni (the San Francisco treat!)
So ok, I’m a 44 year old man. I cook a little: pasta, steak/ chicken on the grill pan or George Foreman or stir fried, homemade chili. That’s pretty much my rotation. But I know making chicken cutlets is easy. But sometimes being easy isn’t a good enough reason.
But saving money is!
Lately, I’ve been cooking more and in large portions so I have food to eat for lunch. So I wanted to try chicken cutlets. I called my mom and looked up recipes. Dip chicken in flour, then in egg, then in bread crumbs, then fry them. Easy.
Ok, I burnt a few. No biggie. And to be honest, they taste pretty much like every chicken cutlet I’ve ever eaten. They seem to be something that’s hard to screw up. And since I can use gluten free flour and gf bread crumbs… now I can cook something for Mona that has a little flavor.
Pet peeve: the term foodporn. Food can taste great. Food can be looked at. But food is not porn. Even metaphorically. Just stop it.
