Even our 5-ingredient fried chicken is a project—you've got to brine the meat and deal with a pot full of oil. These cutlets, on the other hand, are easy enough for a weeknight dinner.

There are a couple defining characteristics of Maryland fried chicken. The first is the dredging, which is nothing more than seasoned flour. Second is the cooking method—shallow-frying the chicken and covering it for part of the time lets the meat cook quickly without the need for tons of oil. Finally, after the chicken is done you pour the fat out of the pan and whip up a rich cream gravy to accompany the meat.
