Veal is the meat of young cattle (calves), in contrast to the beef from older cattle. Though veal can be produced from a calf of either sex and any breed, most veal comes from male calves (bull calves) of dairy cattle breeds. Generally, veal is more expensive than beef from older cattle.1

Ingredients2

  • 2 cups fine plain fresh breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 cup finely grated Pecorino Romano or Parmesan cheese (1 ounce)
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 4 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 pound chicken cutlets, or veal cutlets pounded to an 1/8-inch thickness
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil, plus more if needed

Assembling

  • Marinara Sauce
  • 1 1/4 cups coarsely grated mozzarella cheese (5 ounces)
  • 1/4 cup finely grated Pecorino Romano or Parmesan cheese (1/2 ounce)

Directions

1

Bread and fry the cutlets: Combine breadcrumbs, pecorino Romano, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and some pepper. Put flour, eggs, and breadcrumb mixture in 3 separate dishes. Dredge cutlets in flour, shaking off excess. Dip in egg, letting excess drip off. Dredge in breadcrumbs to coat. Let stand for 30 minutes.

2

Heat oil in large straight-sided skillet over medium-high heat. (Oil is ready when a breadcrumb sizzles when dropped in.) Working in batches, fry cutlets until golden, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Transfer to a paper-towel-lined baking sheet. (If oil gets too dirty, discard, and heat an additional 1/4 cup.)

3

Assemble the dish: Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spread 3/4 cup marinara sauce in the bottom of a 9-by-13-inch baking dish. Arrange a single layer of cutlets on top. Top with 1 cup sauce, covering each piece. Sprinkle with mozzarella and pecorino Romano. Cover with foil. Bake until bubbling, about 10 minutes. Uncover; bake until cheese melts, about 2 minutes more.
