I BRINED my chicken in 4 cups water , 1/2 cup kosher salt (1/4 table salt) ½ cup sugar for 30 minutes. No need to brine if you are using quick frozen chicken that has been enhanced. Kosher chicken is prebrined. Brining=juicy chicken. Took brined chicken, cut off thin edges, pounded out & shook chicken w/flour (preflouring allows bread crumbs to stick) in a Ziploc-letting floured chicken sit for 5 min. I heated 6 TBS vegetable oil till it shimmered & then added 2 TBS butter to my pan, reserving half of this mixture for my second batch. Bread crumb mixture: I use ½ cup seasoned bread crumbs(same as 2 ounces), ½ cup grated parmesan( double what recipe calls for), 1tsp. Mrs. Dash Garlic and Herb, ½ tsp. garlic powder, ½ tsp, onion powder, ½ tsp. Italian seasoning & a pinch of pepper. Took pre-floured chicken, coated it with egg mixture, then dipped in bread crumbs & FRIED the chicken to a medium golden brown. Shook some parmesan on them right away when done frying to absorb any oil. Side-by side I plated plain spaghetti noodles & cutlets, w/2 TBSP sauce on cutlet & desired amount of sauce on pasta, covered in cheese & baked each individual plate till cheese melted, serving them straight out of the oven.
The reviews on this were probably the best I have ever gotten, I used to work in an Italian Restaurant owned by NY Italians & have picked up some techniques. My Fettuccine Alfredo used to be my husband favorite dish, after last night he told me he has a new favorite.
