Chicken cutlets without the use of a meat grinder

Tender chicken cutlets are one of my favorite meat dishes. There was a period that I didn’t have a meat grinder, and I don’t use purchased meat, so these cutlets helped me out. The secret of their preparation is that the meat does not need to be grilled in a meat grinder, but rather finely chopped with a knife. Cutlets are tender, tasty and unusual.
