Ingredients

  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 Tablespoon butter
  • 1 pound chicken cutlets
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • Bruschetta see recipe below
  • 1 cup Mozzarella cheese shredded

Bruschetta Ingredients

  • 2 Roma tomatoes seeded and diced
  • 1 garlic clove pressed or minced
  • 2 Tablespoons basil leaves stacked, rolled and cut into thin slices
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 pepper

Instructions

  • Add olive oil and butter to a large skillet and heat over medium-high heat until butter is melted and begins to froth.
  • Season chicken cutlets with salt and pepper and sprinkle with paprika.
  • Place cutlets in a single layer in the skillet, working in batches if necessary.
  • Cook chicken cutlets for about 3-4 minutes without disturbing. Flip to the other side and cook for 3-4 minutes more or cooked through and internal temperature reaches 165°F. Cooking time will vary depending upon the thickness of the chicken.
  • If preparing fresh bruschetta, mix all of the ingredients together in a small bowl.
  • When chicken is cooked through, turn heat off or to low. Top each piece of chicken with a portion of the bruschetta and sprinkle cheese over the top. Cover skillet with a lid until the cheese melts, about 2-3 minutes. Enjoy immediately.
