Breaded Chicken CutletsPin

I get so jazzed whenever I find a new cookbook I dig. Recently I bought a copy of Twenty-Dollar, Twenty-Minute Meals (for 4 people). I was intrigued to try it out as that’s about the amount of time I have to make most meals. The book’s author, Caroline Wright, put together a really terrific collection of simple, fresh, produce-driven recipes and they are all right up my alley.

After spotting pea tendrils at the farmers’ market last weekend I made Caroline’s recipe for Breaded Chicken Cutlets with Pea Salad. It sounded delicious and I was excited for my family to try a vegetable that rarely graces our dinner table. As the book’s title promises, the dish did not take long to prepare and the chicken came out super juicy on the inside and perfectly crunchy on the outside. I planned on using the leftovers for school lunch the next day, but by the end of dinner nothing was left. Oh well, guess I’ll just have to make them again!
