Chicken Cutlets

One of my families favorites is Chicken Cutlets. It used to be Veal Cutlets but with the

skyrocketing costs we have migrated to chicken with very little difference in the taste. The only

time I will not substitute chicken for Veal is the rare times we serve veal for breakfast. Very

simple but simply delicious.







The veal must be cut very thin and rubbed with a good sea salt and fresh ground black pepper

and then place in a large skillet with olive oil which is fairly hot as we want to brown the cutlets

quickly otherwise the juices will escape prematurely. Once you have placed the cutlets into the

hot Olive oil, throw in a few cloves of garlic quartered.and sear till slightly browned on both

sides. Then cover tightly and turn the flame off and let the veal steep as it releases the natural juices.







Then serve on a hot plate with some good hot fresh Italian or French Bread. I lke to break the

bread instead of cutting it so it has jagged edges and will soak up those wonderful veal juices

better. Thats it! Do not serve it with another single thing as we never want to lose the natrual

flavor of the wonderful veal with it's own juices.







I always remember my father-in-law as Mom would lovingly prepare it for him on a Sunday

Morning. It didn't take much to make one happy in those days. That is why I still insist on

cooking most food from scratch. It does make a difference no matter what the young folks say!

But for tody I want to share with you what we had for dinner tonight. Fried Chicken Cutlets, a

tossed salad and creamed corn. Very simple but very satisfying. The photos outline each step

in preparing this meal.








We'll share some stories with you and some more Recipes along with some great art and fine

books and beautiful music. I hope you like Opera!












Later we will have a cup of espresso coffee and a small biscotti and follwed by a refreshing

fresh lemon Ice which I prepare in my Vita Mix. Fresh, health and delicious.

Come on over to our place! We'll sit on the stoop and watch the neighbors go by or stop and

chat with us.

      Mmmmm! Yummy sounding recipe. We make similar meals also using pork cutlets pounded thin just like the chicken. Veal is often too expensive and like you said, you can hardly tell the difference in flavor. Nice touch with the video at the end with the opera music playing! Up, useful and beautiful votes. I'll come and sit on your stoop anytime...especially with a nice cup of espresso after a good meal such as this! :))
