We serve this over asparagus with a sauce made with roasted and cherry tomatoes and oven roasted tomatoes. If you can not find oven roasted, feel free to use a can of roasted tomatoes drained.

Can I grill the chicken instead of frying it?

Absolutely! In fact, most of the time we grill our chicken for this recipe. If you decide to do this, you will want to marinate the chicken in buttermilk with Italian herbs, garlic powder and black pepper for at least 2 hours to help flavor the chicken and make it more tender. You will want to FINISH it off in the oven, the same way in order to get the cheese to melt. You can also place the grilled chicken with the mozzarella in your air fryer to melt it.

Can I make a Dairy free & Gluten free version of this dish?

Yes! Leave out the parmesan and the mozzarella for a lighter, dairy free meal. Substitute almond flour for the traditional flour. You will still get a golden crust, but gluten free!

I like a Red sauce for my chicken cutlets.

We got you! We do a version of this Italian Chicken Cutlet recipe that uses cherry tomatoes as the base of the sauce. The chicken cutlets in this recipe are acutally grilled. Give our Caprese Grilled Chicken Recipe a try!
