Russian-Style Chicken Cutlets
Variation: Italian-Style Chicken Cutlets Omit the dill. Use half bread crumbs, half grated Parmesan cheese to coat the cutlets.
Sautéed mushrooms are the traditional Russian accompaniment to chicken cutlets. Beets, glazed carrots, and mashed potatoes are other excellent possibilities.
The butteriness of the juicy cutlets contrasts beautifully with the racy freshness of an uncomplicated red wine. A Beaujolais from France or a Merlot from Trentino in Northern Italy or will be perfect.
