Hazelnut-Crusted Chicken Cutlets with Arugula and Fennel Salad
We coated these cutlets with a blend of chopped hazelnuts and panko breadcrumbs, creating a crunchy contrast to the tender chicken. A quickly tossed salad of arugula and fennel dressed with a simple vinaigrette rounds out the meal and provides a refreshingly cool contrast to the crispy cutlets. Chicken cutlets are boneless, skinless breasts that have been halved horizontally; look for cutlets that weigh 5 and 6 ounces each. We pounded the cutlets between sheets of plastic wrap to an even ¼-inch thickness before seasoning. This allows them to cook quickly and evenly. If your cutlets are already ¼ inch thick, skip this step.
cup hazelnuts, finely chopped
cup panko breadcrumbs
01In a wide, shallow dish, stir together the hazelnuts, panko and 1½ teaspoons salt. Season the cutlets on both sides with salt and pepper, then sprinkle with 3 tablespoons of the tarragon, pressing it into the chicken to adhere. One at a time, add the cutlets to the hazelnut-panko mixture, pressing into the mixture and coating both sides. Place the cutlets on a large plate.

Delicious! It definitely took longer than 20 min, and I bought the tenderloins already cut and ready to go, no pounding! I pulsed the hazelnuts in the food processor to get a finer crumb so it would coat better, and used a gluten free panko. A nice, light meal that my family ate every single bit of, and I tripled the recipe!
This is a lovely quick meal. Takes under the 30 minutes. Breadcrumbs would bread a 1.5x of the recipe. I thought it might need some sort of added richness ( goat cheese perhaps ), but it wasn't needed at all. Would go great with eating outside in the summer, perhaps with a glass of white wine.
