These lemony cutlets are elegant enough to serve to company, and simple enough for even a busy weeknight.
Why This Recipe Works
We wanted our Chicken Milanese recipe to feature tender, lemony chicken cutlets with a crisp, golden bread coating and flavorful meat. We preferred the fresh taste of homemade bread crumbs in our recipe. Pulsing them in the food processor with a bit of Parmesan cheese made for an even more flavorful coating for the cutlets in our Chicken Milanese. The traditional three-step breading method created the best crust: We rolled the chicken in flour followed by beaten egg and, finally, a coating of fresh bread crumbs. The initial flour coating gave the egg something to cling to, lending our Chicken Milanese its crisp crust.
