As children, our Mom had a way of making us kids believing we were eating her chicken cutlets.  She knew how we would turn away every time the word “fish” was mentioned. 

So she used the same ingredients in her recipe as she would for her chicken cutlets and called this dish her “chicken of the sea cutlets.”

She would add a little sprinkle of lemon juice, and as kids, we thought we were eating chicken cutlets with lemon, when in fact, they were eating fillets of flounder cutlets.

Her idea certainly worked!

Still today, she uses her “chicken of the sea cutlets” gimmick on all her grandchildren, and over the years all the grandkids have acquired a taste for flounder fillet.

What a great strategy Mom!
