Quick and Crunchy Chicken Cutlets
Our version of "Shake 'n Bake" creates a crisp coating with rich flavor.
Why This Recipe Works
Bread crumb-coated chicken recipes are weeknight staples in many households, but they may not turn out as good as they could. For a recipe that produced quick and crunchy chicken cutlets, we used Melba toast crushed into small pieces and seasoned. Mayonnaise acted as a “glue" to keep the bread crumb mixture stuck to the chicken, and cooking the Quick and Crunchy Chicken Cutlets in a hot oven crisped the crumbs and cooked the meat quickly enough to keep it moist and juicy.
