caesar fusion: turning cutlets into salad stars

Alright, let me tell you

how we're turning a regular chicken cutlet into a Caesar sensation. We're talking about a marinade that's like a flavor party, mixing Caesar dressing and buttermilk for a tangy, creamy kick!!

Now, let's talk about the magic that happens on the outside—that crunch factor! We're not just coating these cutlets with a basic crust; we're covering them with crushed croutons, Parmesan, and a dash of zesty herbs. Golden-brown and crispy—it's a texture party that's impossible to resist.

In a bowl, mix the Caesar dressing with the buttermilk to create the dredging liquid. Place the croutons in a freezer bag. Seal the bag and use the back of a spoon or a small pot to crush the croutons into coarse crumbs.


In a separate bowl, combine the crushed croutons, grated Parmesan, chopped parsley, black pepper, and the lemon zest.


Working one at a time, press each coated chicken cutlet into the dry mixture, ensuring all sides are evenly covered.


Place a wire roasting rack on a sheet tray. Arrange the breaded chicken cutlets on the rack, allowing for air circulation.


Bake in the preheated oven for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes, rotate the pan and continue cooking for an additional 10 minutes, or until the internal temperature reaches 165°.
