Italian “Paleo Breaded” Chicken Cutlets with Paleo Bread™
Italian “Paleo Breaded” Organic Chicken Cutlets
4 to 5 chicken cutlets, preferably organic and free range
1 egg, organic and cage free
2 tablespoons light cream (or unsweetened almond milk)
3 slices Almond Paleo Bread, toasted until crisp
1-1/2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon paprika
Few good grinds of black pepper
Few good shakes cayenne pepper, optional
3/4 teaspoon Celtic sea salt
2-3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil or coconut oil (for sautéing)
In a small food processor, pulverize the 3 pieces of toasted Almond Paleo Bread until they become bread crumbs; place bread crumbs into a shallow bowl. Add all the seasonings to the bread crumbs and mix together well. In a separate medium bowl, beat egg with cream or almond milk and add a pinch of salt and dash of pepper.
Heat a non-stick skillet on medium-high and add a tablespoon or two of oil.
Dip the chicken cutlets, one at a time into the egg mixture and let excess drip off. Place moistened cutlets one at a time into the seasoned bread crumbs, pressing lightly to coat well on both sides; repeating until all cutlets have been breaded. As the cutlets are breaded, add them to the oil coated skillet and cook about 3-5 minutes or until well browned. Flip and repeat cooking and browning on the other side; cook until done and juices run clear.
