Cooking with Babushka: chicken cutlets

Cooking with my mom is always fun, because neither of us use recipes. We either cook from memory or make things up as we go. When I was a kid I never got to eat junk food, but somehow (gasp) I survived.
Here is a chicken cutlet recipe that is easier than defrosting chicken tenders.

1 lbs ground chicken breast
1 egg
1/2 slice of bread (we used Gluten free potato bread)
1/2 c soy or regular milk
Handful of fresh chopped parsley or about 2 tsp dried.
Salt and pepper

Combine all ingredients using your hands till you get a nice gloopy, but still put together mess.

Heat a skillet over medium/high heat with a tablespoon of olive oil.

Drop by the heaping spoonful onto pan and cool for about 5 min or until side is lightly browned.

Flip and cook for 2 min. Add about 2 tbs water and cover with lid. This keeps them super moist! Cook another 5-7 minutes until fully cooked and no longer pink.

We served these with a dijon parmesan sauce, but they taste great on their own.
