Don’t you tolerate low-lactose foods at all?

Try this version:

Instead of egg whites you can use delactosed milk or soy or oat milk, in the second case add more salt or the cutlet will tend to be sweetish.

Try sugar-free wholemeal cornflakes , the slices will be even crisper.

Don’t you like chicken breast?

– Instead of chicken you can try with turkey, surely it will have to cook for less time, otherwise it may become too dry. If this happens, you could eat it with barbecue sauce or ketchup.

– You can also try with pork, with arista or chop or with bone is better.

– You can try with veal slices. The meat shouldn’t be too thick, otherwise it remains raw inside and it could be cooked too much outside, so that to burn the breading.
