Chicken Cutlets - Vincenzo's Plate
Makes around 8 Cutlets

2 lb Chicken breasts cut vertically in half and pounded flat OR cut across the middle horizontally OR 1lb Chicken Tenders
2 eggs
2 Cups Panko Bread Crumbs
1.5 Tbsp Seasoned Salt
1.5 Tbsp Dried Italian Herbs
Sun Flower Oil/Avocado oil/Vegetable Oil


Prepare the Chicken (If using Chicken Tenders, skip this step)
1. Lay a 3 foot long length of palace wrap on some counter space.
2. Cut each breast in half vertically.
3. Place a couple pieces of chicken smooth-side down on the right half of the plastic wrap. Fold over the left side so it covers the chicken completely.
4. Use a mallet to gently flatten the chicken until it is 1/4 inch thick and place them in a single layer on clean plates.

Prepare the Breading
1. Break the egg into a bowl, and beat well with a fork.
2. Toss the Panko, Seasoned Salt, and Dried Italian Herbs together in a wide flat bowl (or tray) with your hands.
3. Make an assembly line with chicken, eggs, breadcrumbs, and then several clean plates.

Bread the Chicken
1. Dry the chicken thoroughly.
2. Submerge a piece of chicken into the bowl with eggs and turn it over using a fork.
3. Suspend the egg-coated chicken over the egg bowl to let any excess drain off.
4. Place the chicken on top of the bread crumbs and batter the bread crumbs on well. Turn over and repeat.
5. Place the breaded chicken in a single layer on clean plates.

Fry the Chicken
1. Heat up some sun flower oil in a non-stick frying pan on medium heat.
2. Once the oil is hot, place the chicken cutlets inside to cook.
3. Cook in batches. Cook on one side for 3 minutes. Then flip and cook for another 2 minutes or until internal temp is 160F.

1. Place the chicken cutlets next to an Italian Side Salad

2. Make a sandwich on hoagie bread with a Chicken Cutlet, mayonnaise, tomato slices, lettuce, American cheese, pickles, and hot pepper relish. The stacking order from top to bottom is:

- Top bun
- Hot pepper spread
- (optional) American cheese
- Chicken cutlet
- Pickles
- Tomatoes, (lightly salted will add way more flavor)
- Shredded lettuce (optional: season lettuce with vinegar and oil)
- Mayo
- Bottom bun
