Craving something crispy, savory, and delicious that can be ready fast? Cheesy chicken cutlets are oh-so-satisfying and ready in less than half an hour! Tender chicken coated in breadcrumbs and cheese is busy weeknight perfection.



1lb chicken breast
1 cup bread crumbs (I like gluten free)
½ cup grated cheese, sharp cheddar or parmesan
1 egg
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp nutritional yeast
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
½ cup olive oil


  1. Lay the chicken on parchment paper and cover. Pound thin, about ½ an inch thick.
  2. In a bowl, add the egg and spices, then whisk together.
  3. Add the chicken and toss until the chicken is well-coated.
  4. In a bowl, mix together the bread crumbs and cheese, then dredge the wet chicken through this dry mix. Push in extra to get as much coating on the chicken as possible.
  5. Pan fry in olive oil over medium heat, about 7 minutes on the first side, and 5-6 minutes on the second side.
  6. Drain on a wire rack and season with salt.
