  • 12 cup finely chopped parsley
  • 1 tablespoonfresh lemon juice
  • 1 12 teaspoonsmaggi seasoning sauce (can swap with soy sauce)

  • 1 pinchkosher salt
  • 34 cupall-purpose flour
  • 3 largeeggs, room temperature
  • 1 12 cupspanko breadcrumbs (Japanese breadcrumbs)
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts (pounded to 1/4 inch thick)
  • 12 cupvegetable oil
  • 12 English cucumber, thinly sliced lengthwise
  • 4 red radishes, trimmed, sliced
  • 1 tablespoondistilled white vinegar
  • 1 pinchsugar
  • 1 pinch aleppo-style pepper (for serving)
  • Directions

  • Whisk mayonnaise, crème fraîche, buttermilk, parsley, lemon juice, Maggi, garlic powder, onion powder, and ½ teaspoons pepper in a medium bowl to combine. Season sauce with salt. (You can make creme fraiche  with 50% sour cream and 50% heavy cream). I make this first and let sit to come to room temperature.
  • Toss cucumber, radishes, vinegar, sugar, and a pinch of salt in a medium bowl to combine; taste and adjust seasoning with more vinegar, sugar and/or salt as needed. Set aside.
  • Place flour in a shallow bowl. Lightly beat eggs in another shallow bowl to blend. Place panko in a third shallow bowl; season all three with salt and black pepper. Working one at a time, season cutlets with salt and pepper, then dredge in flour, shaking off excess. Transfer to bowl with egg and turn to coat, letting excess drip off. Coat with panko, pressing to adhere. (I place on plate or two till I get all coated).
  • Heat oil in a large skillet over medium. Working in 2 batches, cook cutlets, shaking pan occasionally, until golden brown and cooked through, about 2 minutes per side. Transfer to a wire rack; season with salt.
  • Drizzle cutlets with sauce, top with vegetables, then drizzle with a little more sauce. Sprinkle with Aleppo-style pepper. ( I used Ancho Chile pepper, can use hot paprika or even crushed red pepper).
