Quick, crispy, and packed with protein – these Breaded & Baked Chicken Cutlets are about to become your favorite weeknight kitchen trick. In just 40 minutes, you’ll have a tray of tender, golden-brown, healthy chicken cutlets ready to serve with your favorite sides or as yummy add-ons for salad, pasta, or sandwiches.


  • 1 lb thin chicken breasts
  • 1 cup seasoned Panko breadcrumbs
  • 1/3 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp dried parsley
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • Olive oil spray


  1. Set the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. First prepare the chicken breasts. Place your thin chicken breasts (or regular chicken breasts that you have cut in half) on a cutting board. Pound the chicken cutlets with a meat mallet or tenderizer into an even ¼ inch thickness. Or use any heavy object in your kitchen!
  3. Next prepare the chicken dredging elements. Add the eggs to a shallow bowl and whisk. To another shallow bowl add the flour. Then to final shallow bowl add the breadcrumbs, parmesan cheese, garlic powder, dried parsley, salt, and black pepper. Combine thoroughly.
  4. Dip each chicken cutlet into the flour, then the eggs, and then the breadcrumb mixture. Make sure the chicken is thoroughly coated at each step.
  5. Place the chicken on a parchment paper lined baking sheet and spray the top of the chicken with olive oil spray. Bake for 10 minutes, flip, and then bake for another 8 minutes. Then broil on high for 2-3 minutes until golden brown and crispy. Watch closely so it does not burn!
  6. Serve and enjoy! I like to garnish the chicken cutlets with fresh parsley and fresh lemon juice.
