  • If the chicken breasts are thick, cut them thinly with a sharp knife and use a meat mallet to pound it.
  • Prepare 3 shallow bowls: one bowl for the all-purpose flour and cornstarch, one bowl for the beaten eggs, and one bowl containing a mixture of parmesan cheese, breadcrumbs, salt, pepper, garlic powder, and paprika (if using).
  • Season the chicken cutlets with extra salt and pepper, then dip it in the flour bowl until well coated.
  • Dip the chicken in the egg bowl until well coated, then finish it by dipping the chicken in the seasoned breadcrumbs bowl until completely covered on both sides.
  • Repeat with the remaining chicken cutlets.
  • In a large pan, add enough oil to cover the chicken halfway and heat on medium-high heat. Once hot, drop in the chicken cutlet, making sure to place them in a single layer. If your pan is not too big, you may have to fry it in multiple batches. Fry for approximately 3 minutes, or until chicken cutlet is golden brown on both sides.
  • Use tongs or skimmer to transfer the cutlets to a plate lined with paper towels (to remove the excess oil). That's it! I love serving these extra crispy chicken cutlets with a homemade Sambal Aioli (Hot Chili Aioli) Dipping Sauce or 10-minute Sambal Oelek Red Chili Paste. ENJOY!
