Matzo Crusted Chicken Cutlets

When it comes to dinner, I'm all about easy. I like to make things from scratch but I don't want to be spending hours making dinner every night. This is one of our families favorite. It's no secret. The recipe is on the back of every can of Manischewitz Matzo Meal. I know a lot of people who use bread crumbs for coating but this meal mixture is a lot more tasty and creates a crunchy, non-oily coating. Tonight I made some pasta and salad to accompany the chicken.

You will need boneless chicken breast, Manischewitz Matzo Meal, salt, pepper, 1 egg and oil. I cut the chicken width-wise to make it thinner to insure complete cooking. In one bowl, add some salt and pepper to the Manischewitz Matzo to taste. In another bowl, beat the raw egg and add a teaspoon of water.

Dip chicken first into egg mixture and then into meal mixture. Place in a deep frying pan with about an inch of hot oil.

Turn over when bottom is brown.

Continue cooking until dark brown.

Cool on paper towels before serving.
