Chicken Kotleti

Vickie Parks


We all really enjoy this tasty dish! Kotleti is a Russian dish that's similar to a cutlet or Salisbury steak. They're usually made with ground beef, pork or chicken. And this recipe is for a chicken version. The coarser breadcrumbs (like Panko) work best in this recipe, but you can use finer bread crumbs if you cannot find coarse breadcrumbs. Sometimes, I use 1 1/2 pounds of ground chicken so I'll have a few leftover Kotleti that I use to make sandwiches the next day (using hamburger buns or Kaiser rolls--it makes such a great sandwich).

Sandwiches are go-to for me. They can be on the lighter side if I'm looking for a small meal. Or, they can be loaded for something a bit heartier. Whenever...
