Directions

  1. Break the bread into pieces.
  2. In a large bowl, soak the bread in the half-and-half until the liquid is absorbed, about 2 minutes.
  3. Mix in the chicken, egg, salt, pepper, dill and the 3 tablespoons room-temperature butter.
  4. Put in the freezer for about 10 minutes to firm up.
  5. Remover the chicken mixture from the freezer; it will still be very soft.
  6. Form the mixture into four oval cutlets and coat them with the bread crumbs.
  7. In a large nonstick frying pan, heat the remaining 2 tablespoons butter and the oil over moderate heat.
  8. Cook the cutlets until golden brown and just done, 4 to 5 minutes per side.
  9. Variation for Italian-Style Chicken Cutlets: Omit the dill.
  10. Use half bread crumbs, half grated Parmesan cheese to coat the cutlets.
