Chicken Cutlets with Green Beans

chicken cutlets

Sounds healthy? It is, but we DO know what true healthy feels and tastes like. So we’ll cook these tender chicken cutlets, adding a lot of butter.

I just love cutlets — you can cook a lot of them and save some for later. It comes in handy when you’re a workaholic or just an always busy housewife. So cook some more chicken cutlets ahead and store them in the freezer up to half a year!

    I’ve added some ground pork instead of chicken (about 1/3). It turned out so yummy I hope it will be as good after defrosting. I saved some for a lazy day, is there any differences in storing keto-cutlets compared to “usual”?

      No! Meat in the freezer keeps fine without fillers) The main thing is not to allow re-freezing!

      For stuffing it is better to cut the thighs with the skin, so the stuffing will be fattier and juicier. But you can also use the breast, adding a little more butter when frying
