Pietros Chicken Parmesan

At Pietros, the cooks deep fry the chicken cutlets in a large, broad skillet, which allows the oil to come up to temperature very quickly and stay there once the cutlet is added. Smart, but potentially messy( its a lot of oil !). If you have a Dutch oven with high sides, that will minimise splatterwed feel rotten if you got burned.
