How To Make butter & garlic pasta w/ chicken cutlets

  • 1
    Slice each chicken breast into 1 1/2 inch thick slices. Season. Whisk eggs in a bowl. I used 2 pieces of foil. One for flour and the other for the crumbs. Heat oil in a skillet on medium heat. Meanwhile, I roll each piece of chicken in the flour, next egg, then crumbs. Place in skillet, and brown on each side slowly. About 5 - 6 minutes per side.

    While the chicken is cooking; bring your salted pasta water to a boil. Cook the pasta until al dente.

    While pasta is cooking, place your butter in a saucepan. Heat on med - low, so as not to burn. When it begins to simmer, add the garlic. Simmer this for about 20 minutes. Keep a watch not to burn the garlic or butter. When the garlic is nice and tender. Add the hot pepper flakes and cheese. Stir well.

    Drain pasta. Do not rinse. Add to a bowl. Pour the garlic butter over the pasta, and toss to coat well.

    Place pasta on plates. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese,parsley and more pepper flakes if desired. Salt and pepper. Serve the chicken a long side. Or you could cut the chicken into smaller pieces and mix it with the pasta. The kids loved it. Enjoy!
