How to make Chicken Milanese

  • Start with trimming any excess fat present on the chicken.
  • Spread the breadcrumbs on a large flat plate.
  • Add salt, pepper, and oregano to the bread crumbs as desired and mix the dry ingredients well together.
  • Place a non-stick frying pan over the stove on medium heat.
  • Add enough oil to the pan to cover the chicken at least halfway up the sides to cook evenly when they are flipped.
  • Season the chicken with salt and pepper according to taste. Make certain that the chicken is still moist when you use it.
  • Once the oil is heated up, coat the chicken with the breadcrumbs and place it into the hot oil.
  • Leave adequate space between the chicken cutlets in the pan to give them enough room to cook evenly.
  • Fry each side for about five minutes after which they should be turning golden brown.
  • The internal temperature of the cutlets should reach 165°F.
  • Remove the cutlets from the pan and place it on a plate. It is better to have paper towels lined on the serving plate so that excess oil is absorbed.
  • Sprinkle with salt to taste.
