Quick and easy chicken baked in the oven and the taste of fried chicken just healthier, of course you can still fry them if you prefer. These are great either way!
 Baked Chicken Cutlets Recipe

Slice the breasts 1/4 inch thick pieces. Shake in flour. Dip in egg.  In a ziplock bag add 2 cups bread crumbs with seasoning and cheese, shake the chicken in this mixture. Place chicken in a foil lined pan coated with and sprayed with cooking oil. Drizzle with olive oil. Bake on 400 degree oven until browned and crispy on top.

  1. Very good :) Cutlets are always much appreciated by adults and children. Bye, have a good day

  2. An excellent weekday dinner, great that the chicken cutlets are baked.

  3. They look delicious Claudia and easy to boot - a winning combination.

  4. Looks great! Love the cheesy herb coating.

  5. Dear Claudia, I loved chicken and baked cutlets are always welcome. This is flavorful and delicious and great leftover on a sandwich. Blessings dear. Catherine xoxo

  6. I've been baking my breaded chicken in the oven for the longest time now...except, I learned a little helpful 'hint'...instead of dipping them in eggs, I simply let them marinade in bottled Hidden Valley Ranch dressing; using 1 cup. It has all the herbs that's needed...I use a little extra garlic powder as well, and shake...shake...shake it in a baggie.

    Either method, they are so delicious baked that gets the fried flavor w/out frying.
    BTW-Claudia, I have to track back to your honey-garlic wings, in the slow-cooker, to double check; will be making it tomorrow! thanks for sharing:)xo

  7. Sounds perfect for a busy weeknight meal! Quick and delicious!!! Thanks, Claudia :)
