Ingredient list

  • 8 small chicken cutlets , (1½ lb total)
  • Kosher salt and pepper
  • 1 cup(s) panko bread crumbs
  • ¼ cup(s) olive oil
  • 4 teaspoon(s) Dijon mustard
  • 8 slice(s) (thin) deli ham
  • 8 slice(s) (thinly) Swiss cheese, thin slices
  • 2 teaspoon(s) fresh thyme
  • Green salad , for serving


  1. Season the chicken with ¾ tsp salt and ¼ tsp pepper. Coat the cutlets in the bread crumbs, pressing gently to help them adhere.
  2. Heat 2 Tbsp oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add half the cutlets and cook until golden brown and cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes per side; transfer to a plate and wipe out the skillet. Repeat with the remaining oil and cutlets.
  3. Heat broiler. Place the cooked cutlets on a foil-lined, broiler-proof baking sheet. Spread ½ tsp mustard on each cutlet. Top each with a slice of ham and cheese. Sprinkle with the thyme and broil until the cheese begins to brown, 2 to 3 minutes. Serve with salad, if desired.
