Season to taste with salt and pepper.
Serve with chicken.
Garnish with cilantro and lime wedges. Makes 4 servings.
Making Chicken Cutlets:
If chicken cutlets are unavailable, make your own using boneless, skinless chicken breasts. Steady the meat by placing your hand on top of the thickest part of the chicken breast. Cut in half horizontally, being sure to hold your fingers up and away from the blade.
Once you have cut through a few inches of the breast, pull the sliced part back to open and cut down the middle, forming two pieces.
If needed, gently flatten the cutlet with the heel of your hand until it is about a half-inch thick.
