I think cutlets are pre-tenderized. Not that chicken needs tenderizing, but sometimes you can buy them all flattened out ready to dredge in flour or crumbs or roll up with a filling. Probably costs a bit more because it saves you the trouble but really, how hard is it to put a chicken breast between two pieces of plastic wrap and whack it a few times with a heavy object?

Thumbs down

Hello
I'm not quite sure but I think a cutlet is just the skinless chicken breast that has been sliced to make it thiner ....no different in carb count ....which I think is zero ...a number I like a lot
As for pounding with a heavy object ....boy do I have a ton of diet books that could be used !!!!!

Just my two cents worth......a chicken cutlet (patty) is processed chicken meat and pressed into a shape (like a chop) and breaded. Think of it like a giant chicken nugget. A chicken breast is just that.....pure meat from the breast of a chicken....no processing, pure meat, no filler and not breaded. I don't have access to the fitday program, but I would think there would be a HUGE difference between the two.

I don't know ...... I always thought of what you described as a chicken patty ... I used to make chicken parmasan (sp) with it. I know you can buy Turkey Cutlets and they are breast meat that is sliced...so I assumed that a chicken cutlet was the same thing.
The chicken patty thing is a big NO NO ....I don't even want to know what the carbs are in one of them things. I guess the only answer is ask the guy behind the meat counter and if it's breaded RUN !

The butcher at my grocery store said that a cutlet is simply a boneless piece of chicken breast.....who knows though, he hardly looked old enough to legally operate a slicer

I think ...in spite of his not advanced years your butcher might be right. If I get to the grocery store tomorrow I'll ask ....My butcher (even though he thinks I'm nuts) has a great many years on him .....so we will see

WOW !! The great Chicken Debate,...lol

Well I went to the store, they did have chicken cutlets in a pkg,...it looked like a thinner version of a chicken breast and then cut into very thin strips ( like you would use in Stir Fry ).....and it was 3x's the price of what you could do yourself w/ some breasts.

Thanks Everybody
