Chicken Cutlets with Breast Meat & Apple

Chicken Cutlets with Breast Meat & Apple

Make these sour chicken cutlets with apple and inexpensive breast meat.


Chicken breast meat
2 slices
approx. 1/3
Salt and pepper
to taste
2 tablespoons
Breading (flour, egg, panko)
as needed
Vegetable oil (for deep frying)
as needed


1. Cut the chicken breast diagonally into 5-6 mm slices and rub in some salt, pepper and sake. The meat is easiest to slice when it is partially frozen.
2. Slice the apple into 5 mm wedges and sandwich between 2 slices of meat.
3. As you are coating the chicken with flour, press down on the chicken tightly to secure the apple in place.
4. Coat the chicken in a layer of beaten egg, then a layer of panko, and fry in oil at 180°C. Serving with sauce.
5. Add a small amount of milk, sugar and baking powder into the remaining flour, egg and panko. Mix everything up with a pair of chopsticks and fry alongside the chicken.
6. Add 1 teaspoon of baking powder for every 100 g flour. The mixture should be firm and drop slowly from the chopsticks. Add more flour to the mixture if necessary.

Story Behind this Recipe

I remembered that my mum always used to make pork cutlets with apple slices.
So I decided to try making it myself and replaced the pork with cheaper chicken breast meat.
