Salad-Topped Chicken Cutlets

Serves: 4
Total Calories: 310


1 1/4 pounds thin-sliced chicken cutlets
2 large eggs
1/2 cup freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano
2 tablespoons chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 to 2 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1/4 cup olive oil

2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 to 2 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
salt and freshly ground black pepper
4 cups mixed salad greens, torns into bite-size pieces
1/4 cup thinly sliced red onion
1 medium ripe tomato, diced


1 Place the chicken cutlets between two sheets of plastic wrap. Gently pound the cutlets to a 1/4-inch thickness.

2 In a medium bowl, beat the eggs with the cheese, parsley, and salt and pepper to taste. Beat in enough flour to make a smooth paste just thick enough to coat the chicken. Line a plate or tray with paper towels.

3 In a large skillet over medium heat, heat the 1/4 cup of olive oil until a drop of the egg mixture sizzles when added.

4 Dip the cutlets in the egg mixture until well coated. Place just enough of the cutlets in the pan to fit comfortably in a single layer. Cook until browned, about 4 minutes. Turn the chicken with tongs and brown the other side, about 3 minutes more. Drain on the paper towels. Transfer to a plate, cover with foil, and keep warm. Cook the remaining cutlets in the same way.

5 In a large bowl, whisk the 2 tablespoons olive oil, the vinegar, and salt and pepper to taste. Add the salad ingredients and toss well.

6 Top the cutlets with the salad and serve immediately.
