Adults and children alike will love these chicken cutlets drizzled with a piquant dill pickle-butter sauce, which remind us a bit of sophisticated Chick-fil-A. There’s no breading, but the chicken goes into a screaming hot pan so it gets nice and golden brown on the outside. Chicken cutlets are sold in most markets, but you can easily split chicken breasts in half horizontally and make them yourself. Round the dish out with a side of quinoa, your favorite grain, or a green salad. Double the sauce for drizzling on leftover pasta for lunch the next day.
