- 2 chicken breasts (about 1 lb.)
- 1/2 cup flour
- 1 egg
- 1/2 cup bread crumbs
- 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
- S & P
- 4 TBSp. Olive Oil
|Crisp, breaded goodness|
In three shallow bowls, place:
- egg, whisked
- bread crumbs + parmesan cheese + S & P, all mixed
On a poultry-only cutting board, place one chicken cutlet. Taking your knife horizontally to the board, carefully slice the chicken cutlet in half, length-wise so that you have 2 thin, uncooked chicken cutlets. Repeat with the second cutlet so you'll end with four, thin cutlets.
Next, in a saute pan on medium-high, heat 2 TBSp olive oil.
>>>Dredge (I use tongs) one thinned cutlet on both sides in the flour, shaking off the excess, then in the egg, shaking off the excess, & finally, in the bread crumb mixture, again, shaking off the excess. Place it in the saute pan. Repeat with a second, thinned cutlet. Cook for about 4 minutes on the first side or less if the edges start turning golden, then flip onto the other side with tongs. Cook for about another 3-4 minutes. Take out the first two cutlets & place on a paper-towel covered dish.^^^
Add 2 more TBSp olive oil to the saute pan. Repeat above^^^
These are delicious alone or as the base of chicken parmigiana... in a sandwich, etc.
*Lishie tip- Use the same method for chicken tenders or nuggets.
