  • 1 1/2 pounds red potatoes, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3 slices sourdough bread
  • 4 chicken cutlets (about 1 pound)
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 cups (about 7 ounces) store-bought coleslaw mix
  • 1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1 bunch scallions, thinly sliced
  • 1/3 cup shredded pepper jack cheese


In a medium pot, combine the potatoes and enough salted water to cover by 1 inch. Bring to a boil, then lower the heat and simmer until just tender, about 12 minutes; drain.

Meanwhile, in a shallow bowl, beat the eggs. In another shallow bowl, place the breadcrumbs. Season the chicken with salt and pepper and, working with 1 piece at a time, coat with the breadcrumbs, eggs and breadcrumbs again. Transfer to a sheet of wax paper.

In a large nonstick skillet, heat 2 1/2 tablespoons olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and cook, turning once, until golden-brown and cooked through, about 8 minutes. Transfer to a cutting board and let rest for 5 minutes before slicing. Wipe out the skillet.

In the same skillet, heat the remaining 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil. Add the coleslaw mix and bell pepper; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring often, until wilted and tender, about 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the scallions. Coarsely mash in the potatoes and cheese; season with salt and pepper. Serve with the chicken.
