Oven-Fried Chicken Cutlets

This is a great example from challenger 2BFitIn10 of taking a recipe and with a few very minor adjustments cutting the calories and fat to make a healthier meal.

Oven-Fried Chicken Cutlets

Today, I decided to use up some leftover salad greens before they spoiled. First, I tweaked the following recipe for Oven-Fried Chicken Cutlets. The original called for 1/3 cup of butter or margarine and 1 cup of round buttery cracker crumbs. I substituted cooking spray and seasoned bread crumbs instead in order to healthify it a bit.


1 cup seasoned bread crumbs

1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese

1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon pepper

4 chicken breast cutlets (about 1 1/4 pounds)

Olive oil cooking spray

  1. Stir together first 5 ingredients in a shallow bowl.
  2. Rinse and pat the chicken dry with a paper towel. Spray both sides of the chicken with cooking spray. Dredge in the crumb mixture. Place on a foil-lined baking sheet that has been sprayed with cooking spray.
  3. Bake at 400° for 10-15 minutes. Turn chicken over and bake for another 10-15 minutes or until chicken is brown and done.

Once the chicken was done, I placed a piece on top of a bed of spring greens, grape tomatoes, a sprinkling of part-skim reduced fat mozzarella and tortilla strips. It was quick, easy, and everyone loved it!
