For the chicken Cut each chicken breast in half lengthwise. Place each piece of chicken in between two sheets of plastic wrap. Use the flat end of a meat mallet or a heavy pan to pound the chicken thin. Repeat the process with the remaining pieces of chicken. Place the flour in a bowl and season it generously with salt and pepper to taste. Place the milk and eggs in a bowl and whisk to combine. Place the Italian breadcrumbs and panko breadcrumbs in a bowl and stir to combine. Dip each piece of chicken in the flour, then the egg mixture, then the breadcrumbs. Heat the oil in a large pan over medium high heat. Add the chicken cutlets in a single layer. Cook for 4 minutes per side, or until golden brown, crispy and cooked through. Sprinkle with parsley. For the salad Place all the salad ingredients in a bowl and toss well to combine. Arrange the salad either on top of, or next to, the chicken cutlets. Serve immediately.
