Cooking chicken cutlets with cheese inside:

Step 1: Make Minced Meat

Take fresh and necessarily well-washed chicken fillet under running water and onions peeled in advance from the husk, pass everything through a meat grinder. In the prepared meat, add salt, black pepper and beat a raw egg to your taste. Mix everything thoroughly until smooth. Ready stuffing can be beaten off in order to get a smoother structure.

Step 2: Rub the cheese.

Rub on any fine or medium grater any hard cheese. Add to it pre-softened butter and mix well. You will get the filling, which you need to put in the refrigerator for a while.

Step 3: Form the cutlets.

Take a piece of minced meat, about a chicken egg, form a thin cake from it. Roll a small sausage from the cheese mass for the filling and place it in the center of the chicken cake. Then take another piece of minced meat, a little smaller and also make a cake out of it. Cover the cheese filling with this cake and gently smooth the sides of the patties with your fingers. Give the cutlet a round, oval or any other shape. Place it in breadcrumbs and roll it well on all sides.

Step 4: Serve the chicken cutlets with cheese inside.

Formed chicken cutlets, move to a pre-heated pan, greased from the inside with vegetable oil. Fry them on both sides, bringing to a golden crust. When all the patties are fried, transfer them back to the pan or not a large cauldron, pour a little clean water, cover with a lid. Thus, simmer the chicken meatballs over medium heat for about 15-20 minutes. Peerless chicken cutlets with cheese inside are ready - you can serve it to the table!
