I've noticed I've been cooking a lot of chicken lately. Has anyone noticed how high the price of beef is these days? My weekly grocery bills have skyrocketed. It seems I'm spending the same, but coming home with less. Anyway, this is very simple to make. With two chicken breasts you can make lunch for four.
2 chicken breasts
salt / pepper / onion powder / garlic powder
all purpose flour
seasoned bread crumbs
oil for frying
Place your chicken breast on a cutting board and cover with plastic wrap. Pound with a mallet to flatten. Repeat with the second chicken breast. Cut into thick slices. Season with salt / pepper / onion powder / garlic powder and splash of lime juice. Refrigerate for one hour.
Using three bowls pour flour into one, beat an egg into another (add a little water), and pour bread crumbs into the third. Coat your chicken pieces in flour, pass them through the egg wash and give them a final coating with the bread crumbs.
Heat a skillet with about 3/4 inch of oil and drop your chicken pieces in one by one. (Do not put too many in at once). Fry til golden brown. Serve with your favorite dipping sauce.
I also made the coleslaw.... 1/4 head of cabbage chopped, 1 carrot grated and store-bought slaw dressing. Easy.
