Chicken Breast Cutlets with Cottage Cheese

Chicken breast cutlets with cottage cheese – now, that’s a dish with a delightful contrast of textures: the tender, lean chicken paired with the creamy, mild cottage cheese. This combination can be prepared in a simple, yet flavorful way. Here’s a recipe that brings out the best in both ingredients.


  • Chicken Breast Cutlets (4, thinly sliced)
  • Cottage Cheese (1 cup)

  • Garlic (2 cloves, minced)
  • Olive Oil (2 tablespoons)
  • Fresh Parsley (1/4 cup, chopped)
  • Paprika (1 teaspoon)
  • Salt and Pepper (to taste)


  1. Prepare the Chicken:
    • Pat the chicken cutlets dry and season with salt, pepper, and paprika.
    • In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat.
    • Add the chicken cutlets and cook for about 3-4 minutes on each side until golden brown and cooked through.
    • Remove from the skillet and set aside.
  2. Cottage Cheese Mixture:
    • In a bowl, mix the cottage cheese with minced garlic, lemon zest, lemon juice, and fresh parsley. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Assemble the Dish:
    • Place the cooked chicken cutlets on a serving plate.
    • Top each cutlet with a generous spoonful of the cottage cheese mixture.
  4. Serve:
    • Garnish with additional parsley and lemon slices if desired.
