Recipe Details


We couldn’t resist putting a comforting American spin on a classic Italian preparation. Thin and crispy breaded chicken cutlets are paired with our homemade creamy honey mustard—a more elegant take on the classic fried chicken dipping sauce. A side of arugula salad keeps things light while doubling down on the bright and tangy mustard flavors in a creamy vinaigrette.

  3. Dredge Chicken
