¾ cup all-purpose flour

2 large eggs

1½ cups panko (Japanese breadcrumbs)

¼ cup grated Parmesan

1 tbsp mustard powder

4 small skinless, boneless chicken cutlets (about 1½ lbs total), pounded to ¼” thickness

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

1 lemon, halved

8 tbsp Sizzle, divided


Active Time: 30 minutes

Full Time: 45 minutes

Serves 4

Place the flour in a shallow bowl. Beat eggs in a second shallow bowl. Combine panko, Parmesan, and mustard powder in a third shallow bowl and season mixture with salt and pepper.


Season chicken with salt and pepper, then dredge in flour, shaking off any excess. Transfer to bowl with beaten egg and turn to coat. Lift from bowl, allowing excess to drip back into bowl. Coat with panko mixture, pressing to adhere.

DO AHEAD: Chicken can be breaded 3 months in advance. Place between pieces of freezer paper or waxed paper and freeze in resealable freezer bags. Thaw before continuing.


Heat 6 tbsp of Sizzle in a large heavy skillet or a cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. Working in 2 batches, cook cutlets, adding remaining 2 tbsp of Sizzle to the pan between batches, until golden brown and cooked through, about 4 minutes per side. Transfer cutlets to a paper towel–lined plate and season with salt. Serve with lemon.
