Last week was all about lemon, so you think I would change it up a little this week. Well, I meant to, but it seems that lemon snuck in with this Chicken Cutlet with Lemon Mayonnaise and Arugula Sandwich. How good does that sound, though?
There’s something about the summertime that makes me crave sandwiches and want to grill. Ideally, I combine grilling and sandwiches as much as possible. Since the weather isn’t being grill-friendly, I’m going to get half of my summertime urges met with this chicken sandwich that is made on the stove. I’m really looking forward to trying this recipe!
This Chicken Cutlet with Lemon Mayonnaise and Arugula Sandwich is the ultimate in flavor and crunch!
Shopping for this chicken and arugula sandwich recipe was easy, and I found all of the ingredients at my local grocery store. Well, those that weren’t already in my pantry and refrigerator.
Although I could have bought four chicken cutlets, I followed the recipe’s instructions and bought two chicken breasts. Cutting them into cutlets was quick and easy, but you could buy cutlets instead to save some time and effort.
One thing I did splurge a little on was the bread. I bought French hamburger buns from the bakery for this recipe. Plain hamburger buns from the bread aisle just didn’t seem fancy enough.
The instructions for this recipe were nice and easy to follow. The whole process went pretty smoothly from start to finish, and I had my chicken and arugula sandwiches made in 27 minutes.
The only slight issue that popped up was that I almost ran out of egg while breading the chicken. I thought I would need to add an extra beaten egg, but it turns out I had just enough to double-bread all four chicken cutlets. Whew!
One thing I did do that wasn’t in the recipe was use tongs while breading the chicken. I often use my bare hands for breading and reserve the tongs for frying, but then I end up with breaded fingertips. Yuck! This time I remembered my tongs for both steps (with a quick wash in between) and breading was much neater than I’m used to.
