Servings 4 Servings
- 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
- 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
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.
