Get your bowl or plate to put all the seasoned cutlets before frying. Also get a plate to put your cutlets on after cooking, put 2 paper towels on the plate to catch the excess oil.
Pull out your metal end tongs and slotted spoon and set aside. Then remove cutlets from refrigerator, trim fat and slice if desired and wash in cold water then lay them out on a cutting board.
Wash hands thoroughly in soapy hot water and dry with a paper towel (food safety) 😄 From now on use your tongs to handle the chicken. If you don't have tongs then you can use a long fork.
