Hello, I'm Erika Monroe-Williams, creator of and TV cooking expert. Today, I'll be showing you how to make a chicken cutlet sandwich and for today's sandwich we're going to be making a grilled chicken Parmesan cutlet sandwich. This recipe calls for two sandwiches, one chicken breast. So I've pounded this out nice and thin and evenly and so we're going to start with the sauce though. This sauce calls for one tablespoon of olive oil, two minced garlic cloves, a quarter of a white onion, chopped, three vine ripened tomatoes and you can just deseed this and chop it and then we have one and a half tablespoons of tomato paste, a half a teaspoon of dried oregano and a half of a teaspoon of red pepper flakes which is optional if you don't like a little too much spice and then we're going to just season to taste with some salt and sugar at the end. Okay so we're going to start on a medium low heat in a saucepan. We're going to add our olive oil and then our onions and our garlic and we want to make sure that we don't brown the garlic. Garlic browns so easily. So we're going to cook this until the onions are nice and translucent as well as the garlic and you really want to stir this and watch over this. So we're going to cook this for about a minute. So our onions and garlic are nice and translucent. So it's time to add the tomatoes, our tomato paste which I'm going to scoop out with a spoon here, our oregano and just a little bit of red pepper flakes just to give it a nice little kick. I'm going to stir this up and then we're going to reduce the heat and we're going to let it simmer for about 20 minutes and the sauce is going to get nice and thick and be perfect for our Parmesan chicken sandwich. We're going to cover that and let it simmer for about 20 minutes. So now while the sauce is simmering, we're going to start on our chicken. And what I've done is I've taken our chicken breast and I have pounded it out with a tenderizer to about a quarter of an inch thickness and you want it nice and even and about the size of your roll which is perfect right here. So we're going to take this, we've got a lot of different ingredients here and we have two different dredging bowls. So we're going to take a half of a cup of flour, one teaspoon of salt and a half teaspoon each of dried oregano, basil and thyme. So we're going to put these into one of our dredging bowls. I'm just going to mix those up and set this aside for a second. Then we've got one egg that I've whisked into another dredging bowl and we need to put this together with one tablespoon of olive oil. I'm going to mix that up and this recipe also calls for half of a cup of bread crumbs and a quarter of a cup of freshly grated Parmesan. So I'm going to take the chicken, first, we're going to put this right into the egg wash. Then, we're going to put it into the flour mixture. This is going to give it that nice coated crust and place this back here. We're going to do it to the other. We're going to coat this one as well and try to get a nice thickness of coating on here, of breading on here. So then we place it back. So now I'm just going to quickly rinse my hands off so we can get to the bread crumbs. Alright, so we're going to coat each side with bread crumbs and then, I'm going to take a baking dish and I'm going to turn this upside down in the baking dish and then we're going to coat the other side with bread crumbs as well right here in the baking dish. And then it's time for our Parmesan and you want to be really generous with this and we just coat that and we're going to bake this with the Parmesan right on it. So we're going to place this into a 375 degree oven for about 15 minutes and then we're going to take it out and we're going to assemble our sandwiches. So our chicken cutlets are out of the oven and perfectly browned. You can put them under the broiler for a little bit after baking if you want to get that nice crust going. So I'm just going to set those there and then I'm going to grill our french rolls first just for a little bit. I have a nice grill pan going and I've put this over medium to medium high heat and I've brushed olive oil over the grill so we can just have that and while that's cooking, let's finish our sauce. Okay so our sauce has simmered for about 20 minutes and it looks absolutely perfect. We just need to season, a little bit of salt and a little bit of sugar. You don't want to put too much of either in, I'll put a little more salt in and now we're going to stir this up and get it ready to build our sandwiches. Okay, using a bacon press to get these nice and toasty. So what we're going to do is we're going to wait just a couple of minutes to get these nice and toasty and then we're going to come back and we're going to build our sandwiches. So our French rolls are nice and grilled. We just want to get them a little bit warmed so that the cheese melts when we put it on. So they don't have to be perfectly toasted because we're going to do that to the outside. Okay so we have our two French rolls. What we're going to do first is we're going to add the sauce. You just want to do a nice amount on each side of the bread. So the bread is nice and coated, just like that. It looks delicious and do that again over to the other side, get enough on each so that the sandwich is nice and juicy. Okay, make sure to use all your sauce. Okay, now we're going to place our chicken cutlets on the bottom part of the sandwich, the bottom part of the roll and then we're going to use our fresh mozzarella. So you just want to cover this chicken with the fresh mozzarella and this is going to get nice and melty when we grill the sandwiches. So you just cover, cover. We've got two beautiful sandwiches that we're going to put on the grill now, back onto the grill. This is going to melt that cheese and get a nice crispy toasty outside and bacon press helps also. It's a little weight and it gets them to grill. So we're going to grill these until they are nice and toasty and until the cheese is melted. So our sandwiches have been grilling on each side for about two to three minutes and you want to just make sure that they are nice and toasty and that the cheese is melty which you can see, this is perfect right now. Our cheese is nice and melty and look at that, absolutely perfect. So we want to put them over here on our cutting board because we want to add some basil. I'm going to let this one cook a little longer while we finish this sandwich off, look how beautiful that is. Okay, so we're going to cut this in half first, oh my goodness, this looks wonderful. Okay, and we're just going to open it up quickly and we're going to put some fresh basil on here. So it will give it some nice flavor, do the same on both sides, perfection. And that's how you make a chicken cutlet sandwich.
