Recipe for cooking chicken cutlets with vegetables and rice, baked in the oven

Step-by-step instructions:

1. Wash the chicken fillet, dry it from excess moisture with paper towels. Clean the meat from fat and films, cut into large pieces. Grind the chicken fillet into mince using a blender or a meat grinder with a fine grate. Thoroughly wash the long-grain rice, fill it with cold water, boil until tender, throw it into a sieve. In a deep bowl, combine the chicken mince and rice cooled to room temperature.

2. Peel the onion, cut into small cubes. Wash the carrots, peel them, chop them on a grater with a fine cloth. Put the prepared vegetables in a frying pan with heated vegetable oil. Stirring occasionally, sauté the onions and carrots over medium heat until soft. Cool the vegetables to room temperature.

3. Wash the zucchini, cut off the ends, and grate on a fine grater. Squeeze out excess juice from the vegetables and add to the minced meat for the cutlets. Add the sautéed onions and carrots.

4. Beat the chicken egg into the resulting mixture. Add salt and ground spices to taste.

5. Mix the minced meat for the cutlets thoroughly until smooth.

6. Wet your hands in cold water and form round or oval cutlets of the same size from the minced meat. I got 8 cutlets from the specified amount of ingredients. Place the cutlets on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper.

7. Place the chicken cutlets with vegetables and rice in the oven preheated to 180 degrees for 25-30 minutes. When the products are browned, carefully remove them from the oven and place them on a plate.

8. Serve the finished chicken cutlets with zucchini hot with your favorite side dish or sauce. Bon appetit!
