Quick Stovetop Chicken Cutlets with Fresh Cherry Salsa

Quick Stovetop Chicken Cutlets with Fresh Cherry Salsa

Serves 4
Instead of chicken, you could spoon this family-friendly salsa over pork chops or baked tofu, or serve it with tortilla chips in place of standard tomato salsa. Stir in chopped jalapeños, if you like.
  • 1/2 pound cherries (about 2 cups), pitted
  • 1/2 cup chopped white onion
  • 1 large ripe tomato, cored and roughly chopped
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper, divided
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • 3/4 cup whole wheat breadcrumbs
  • 4 (5-ounce) boneless, skinless chicken cutlets
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

Put cherries, onion, tomato, 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper into a food processor and pulse to make a chunky salsa. (Or, finely chop all of the ingredients and toss together in a bowl.) Stir in cilantro and set aside.

Put breadcrumbs into a wide, shallow dish. Season chicken all over with 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper, dredge in breadcrumbs to coat, shake off and discard any excess crumbs and transfer coated cutlets to a large plate.

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Working in two batches, if needed, arrange chicken in skillet in a single layer and cook, flipping once, until cooked through and golden brown, 6 to 8 minutes. Transfer to plates and spoon salsa over the top.
