Crispy oven fried chicken
This is my favorite recipe for crispy oven fried chicken. I prefer using white meat to lower the fat content, however any chicken cut into pieces will do. For years I had been buying Italian style and plain bread crumbs. It’s no wonder the foodie community raves about these bread crumbs! My hubby, he really enjoyed and appreciated the chicken. And my son, well, he thought the cutlets were comparable to Popeyes!

Crisp & Spicy Chicken Cutlets


5 boneless chicken breasts
2-3 tablespoons Louisiana brand hot sauce
3 tablespoons of EVOO
1.5 cups panko crispy bread crumbs (plain)
1/2 teaspoon Cayenne pepper
salt and black pepper to taste
Cooking Spray

I fillet the chicken breasts, it’s easier than pounding them. Start at the small end, keeping the knife parallel and flat and cut through to the wide end. It’s just like filleting a fish. Rinse the chicken and drain them, don’t pat them dry. Put the chicken cutlets in a bowl and add the hot sauce. Mix them well to be sure the chicken is coated. Marinate for at least 30 minutes. Meanwhile preheat the oven to 400. Spray a rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray. Mix the panko crumbs and seasonings. Seasonings can be altered to suit your taste; Experiment with ranch seasoning mix or lemon pepper seasoning. Lightly brush chicken with olive oil. Firmly press cutlets one at a time into the crumb mix, turn and repeat to coat both sides. Place chicken on prepared baking sheet and cook for 25-30 minutes, until juice runs clear.

Chicken Milanese SandwichI should also mention, since the recipe yields 10 cutlets, these are great in a sandwich with some fresh lettuce and tomato.
