Gluten-Free Parmesan Chicken Cutlets

Honestly, what is better than a tender, crisp, golden brown cutlet! These cutlets can turn into the perfect chicken parm or star as the main dish at any meal.

Chicken Cutlets is a dish everyone in my household loves. Serve it up with your favorite side dishes and you got yourself a delicious meal. I believe anyone can make these. The technique is simple, dip the cutlet in flour, the egg, and lastly the panko mixture.

There are a few things you can do to ensure your success. First make sure your cutlet is not to thick, pound it out baby! Pounding the chicken will keep it thin and also tenderize it. Second, don’t buy preseasoned panko, season it yourself! Fresh herbs are a game-changer do not sell yourself short! Seasonings and fresh herbs bring so much life and flavor to a dish. Lastly, do not forget the cheese!! More cheese.. more better, in my opinion, ha!

You can slather these cutlets up with marinara and mozzarella for the most amazing chicken parm ever!! You’re going to love these guys!!
