Uncomplicated Cutlets: Authentic Italian Recipe

Reading Time: 2 minutes
The next Whole Life Challenge starts in:

When you are Italian, cutlets are a huge part of your meal plan. Veal and chicken cutlets were always a family favorite in my house, but when classically prepared that meant they were dredged in flour and egg, then fried in olive oil.

My updated recipe follows the same tradition but without the gluten and the unhealthy effects of heating olive oil. By using more conscious alternatives this dish becomes a healthy dream come true for the Italian in all of us.
