Fast & Easy Recipe For Crispy Chicken Cutlets With Creamy Romaine Salad


1 cup buttermilk
3/4 cup cornmeal
kosher salt and pepper
8 chicken cutlets (about 1 1/2 pounds)
6 tablespoons olive oil
1/4 cup sour cream
1/2 teaspoon honey
1 head romaine lettuce, cut into pieces
1 red bell pepper, sliced


  1. Place 3/4 cup of the buttermilk in a shallow bowl. In a separate bowl, combine the cornmeal, 1 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Dip the chicken in the buttermilk (letting any excess drip off), then the cornmeal, pressing gently to help it adhere.
  2. Heat 3 tablespoons of the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook half the chicken until golden and cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Wipe out the skillet. Repeat with the remaining oil and chicken.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk together the sour cream, honey, the remaining 1/4 cup of buttermilk, and 1/4 teaspoon salt. In a large bowl, toss the lettuce and bell pepper with the dressing. Serve with the chicken.

Serves 4.
