Chicken Parmesan

There are lovely days, when you have a great day outdoors, you eat brunch or lunch or whatever anywhere but home, and then you come bach to the formentioned home to discover that your fridge is more than partialy empty and there is a very hungry person you need to feed in aproximatly 30 minutes or they will go off like a time bomb. And I'm not talking about myself, even though that does happen to me ( I'm like a man- no food- grumpy), I'm talking about my better half ( he is better).
So, to be savvy and smart and prepared for the unpreparable, I freeze, as I probably have mentioned before. In ziploc baggies and in small portions, so it's easy and quick to defrost a sad chicken cutlet left behind in the depths of the freezer, cold to death (?), waiting to be defrosted in a bath of water.

Type of dish: main
Cost: cheap
Difficulty: easy
Serves: 1
Time: 15 min
Preparation time: 3 min
Cooking time: 10 min

You'll need:
cutting board, sharp knife, spatula or tongs, a medium frying pan, plate

  • 1 chicken cutlet, fresh or defrosted, cut off any white bits
  • fresh grated parmesan cheese
  • S&P
  • olive oil 
  • 1 tsp butter
Heat up your frying pan on medium high, and when it's hot, but not omg hot, add the olive oil, then the butter and swirl around  so the butter doesn't brown immeadiatly.  Season your chicken on both sides, and sprinkle over both side. Put gently in the pan, to prevent any cheese falling off the cutlet. When golden on one side, turn to the other. This should take in general around 6-10 min.
Remove form heat and serve.

For a  fast dish serve with easy couscous.
Ps. This works well even with the ready grated cheese.
