What do you do with chicken cutlets?

Besides breading and frying....need some new ideas, please!

I tend to cut my chicken into small pieces and stir-fry it: with garlic and ginger (and then vegetables and soy sauce) to serve with rice, or with garlic and rosemary to toss with pasta, olive oil, vinegar, and vegetables.

You can cut it in strips (or bite-size pieces, or leave the cutlet whole) and marinate in a mixture of yogurt, garlic, salt, and green onions (maybe a little bit of oil mixed in if it's nonfat yogurt), and then skewer, and broil or grill. It's delicious.

You can sprinkle them with salt and pepper (or seasoning salt, or lemon pepper salt, or cajun seasoning, or jerk seasoning, or really anything else that sounds tasty) and bake them at 350 degrees until done. My mom would serve it with rice pilaf and vegetables on the side.

For low-fat breading ideas, you can coat them in crushed corn flake cereal, and then bake them.

You can cut up chicken and use it in tacos, or layer with basil leaves, tomato slices, and top with mozzarella cheese and serve with spaghetti and marinara sauce.

Hi there linda.I dont do any frying at all,on a diet and cant,but never really liked it much.I buy the butterfly cutlets,season them,then lay them out in a bamboo steamer and steam them till tender.It dosnt take long,but you must make sure that they are cooked properly as chicken,any white meat has alot of bacteria.You can use left over steamed chicken meat after in sandwiches.I use it to make chicken and sweetcorn soup.Honestly,i used to think that it would taste bland by steaming chicken,but its lovely.you can coat the chicken in sweet n sour sauce or plum sauce before you steam,the plum especially is lovely. sprinkle some nutty seeds,or slithered almonds over chicken when cooked.

If you see this, leave this form field blank.

there are so many things you can do. you can season them a million way. one way is baking with salsa and cheese on top. or you can cook chicken fettuccine alfredo, add broccoli. i like to saute in a pan with olive oil, garlic, italian seasoning and then put in a baking dish with cooked fettuccine noddles, alfredo sauce(bertolli is a good one) throw in some broccoli and bake. tastes great with a nice side salad.

You could stuff them with stuffing or with vegatables like tomatos, and spinage. And bake it.
