This is just a quick, simple dinner idea for any cut of chicken (leg, breast, thigh, wing, etc) you happen to have an excess of. All you need is your choice of chicken, some egg, flour and breadcrumbs. Parmesan cheese might be a nice addition and this can be served with pasta, rice, veggies, or any other side of your choosing. You can also salt and pepper the chicken but I didn’t find that necessary.
~1 pound of chicken (I used chicken breast)
3/4 cup of breadcrumbs
1/2 cup of flour
Oil for cooking
1. Pound your chicken out to tenderize it with a tenderizer or the back of a small frying pan.
2. Set out a plate of flour, a wide bowl of egg (mixed), and a plate of breadcrumbs. Dip each chicken piece in the flour, coating both sides, followed by the egg and then press in the breadcrumbs.
3. Coat a pan in oil so it covers the bottom about 1/8-inch to 1/4-inch. Place each piece of chicken in the pan and cook until golden-brown and crisp and then flip to cook the other side. Remove from oil and place on paper towel-ed plate to cool. Enjoy!
