Fried Chicken Breast Cutlets
3/4 cup milk
1 to 2 tbs hot sauce (such as Frank’s, Texas Pete, or Tabasco)
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 tsp Cajun seasoning (or a similar blend preferably salt-free)
1 tsp salt (use 1/2 teaspoon if the seasoning contains salt)
1 tsp ground black pepper
1-inch vegetable oil (such as canola or peanut oil)
4 chicken breast cutlets (boneless or small chicken breast halves, slightly flattened)
In a large bowl whisk the egg with the milk and hot sauce.
In a wide, shallow bowl, combine the flour, Cajun seasoning, 1 tsp salt, and pepper.
In a large heavy, deep skillet or Dutch oven, heat about 1 inch of oil to 350°.
Heat the oven to 200° if serving will be delayed for a short time or if doubling the recipe and must cook in batches.
When the oil is hot, dip a chicken cutlet (or flattened small chicken breast half) in the egg and milk mixture.
Let excess drip off, then coat with the flour mixture. Carefully lower the coated chicken into the hot oil. Repeat with the remaining pieces.
Fry the chicken for about 3 to 4 min on each side, until browned and cooked through.
Drain the chicken on layers of paper towel or brown paper bags.
Serve immediately or transfer to a large baking sheet and keep warm in a 200° oven or warming drawer.
