Chelsea @ Our Little Nest {Guest Post}

Hi guys! I’m Chelsea from Our Little Nest, where I share my favorite recipes and meal plans, diy 
projects, style, and all the things I love! I love working with Stephanie any chance I can get, and 
today I have a Chicken Milanese recipe to share with you that I hope you’ll enjoy!
This Chicken Milanese is not only extremely quick and easy to make but it’s also equally 
delicious. I love making this for a quick weeknight meal. The cutlets even make a tasty sandwich 
the next day! 

These cutlets are traditionally made with veal or pork, but I like using chicken to lighten them 
up a bit. The breading is loaded with parmesan cheese and the cutlets cook up nice and golden 
1/3 cup all-purpose flour, for dredging
2 large eggs, beaten
1 ¼ cups Italian bread crumbs
2/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
4 chicken cutlets (boneless, skinless chicken breast, sliced crosswise and pounded thin)
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
2 tablespoons butter
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 lemon, cut into wedges

Place the flour in a shallow dish or bowl. Place the eggs in another. Mix the bread crumbs 
and Parmesan cheese in a third. Set them up in this order so that you have a little breading 
assembly line. 

Sprinkle each chicken cutlet with salt and pepper. Working with one cutlet at a time, dredge the 
chops in flour to lightly coat, then dip into the beaten eggs, allowing the excess egg to drip off. 
Then coat each cutlet with the bread crumb mixture, press gently to adhere the crumbs. Gently 
set the cutlets in a single layer on a baking sheet. 

Preheat the oven to 150 degrees. Meanwhile, in a large sauté pan, melt the butter and the oil 
over medium high heat. Place 2 chicken cutlets into the oil mixture and cook until light golden 
brown, about 3 minutes per side. Transfer the cutlets to a clean baking sheet. You can keep 
these warm in the oven while you cook the remaining cutlets. 

Serve each cutlet with a lemon wedge and a simple side salad (peppery arugula works perfectly 
with the Parmesan flavors in the dish). 
I hope you’ll give these cutlets a try and stop by my blog to say hello!
