8 New Ways to Coat Your Cutlet

20 'Healthy' Foods That Are Actually Unhealthy (And How to Fix Them)

From nuts to potato chips, we have eight new ideas for you to add some crunch to your cutlet. Do you love barbecue chicken wings? So do we, and we figured out how to make them with a little texture using something else we love: barbecue potato chips. Along with potato chips, we also show you that there's more to honey mustard pretzels than just dirty fingers, that cereal isn't just for breakfast, and that pistachios don't always have to be a struggle to eat.

While we're all about stretching the boundaries with breading, there are some basic rules you need to stick by so that you get tender and moist meat and a perfect golden-brown exterior. While variations exist in breading techniques, we stick by the traditional flour-egg-breading procedure.

So now that we've covered the basics, it's time to explore the world of breading and go beyond the breadcrumbs.
