Mom's Parmesan Chicken Cutlets


Growing up in Italy, my favorite "home from school" meal that my mom prepared for my sister and I was chicken cutlets. Elementary school would let out at 12.30 and our home was literally across the street so we would rush home to see what Mom had prepped. Tuesday was generally chicken cutlets day, the reason being that Tuesday was outdoor market day so while my sister and I were in school, my mom would make her rounds at the outdoor market and purchase fresh chicken tenders and fresh parmesan cheese. With the bread shop being right by our house as well (we lived in a small town!) we would have chicken cutlet sandwiches on just about every Tuesday. Oh, how I miss those days! To this day, this is my numero 1 comfort food!

What you will need

1.5 pounds chicken tenders
