9 Last-Minute Dinner Ideas
For nights when even ordering takeout isn't fast enough, here are simple meals you can throw together with whatever ingredients you have around.
If you have chicken cutlets, bread crumbs and eggs...
Make crispy chicken. If you have time, pound 4 cutlets to increase each piece's surface area and therefore maximize the amount of crunch. Then fill 3 shallow bowls with about 1/2 cup flour, 2 lightly beaten eggs, and a cup of breadcrumbs. Dip the chicken into each bowl in that order and then fry in 1/4 inch of olive oil, about 3 minutes per side. Squirt lemon juice on top.
