This breaded chicken is easy and for mom's like me, recipes like this make life enjoyable. My kids love, love, love this and I was pleasantly surprise of how tasty this turned out to be.
Tip 1: If your crumbs aren't bought seasoned, just season it yourself. Just add to your 500 grams plain bread crumbs, 2 tbsp dried thyme, 2 tbsp dried parley, 1 tsp garlic powder (if you like it) and any other favourite herbs of yours!
Tip 2: I didn't have any of the herb in the sauce but these still tasted oh so good!
Ingredients for Breaded Chicken:
4 chicken breast, skinless and boneless
1 egg, beaten
2/3 cup seasoned bread crumbs
2 tbsp olive oil
Parmesan cheese, grated (optional)
Ingredients for Simpler version of Lemon-Butter Sauce
1 lemon, juiced
3 tbsp butter
1 tsp fresh chives or 1/2 tsp dried chives (optional)
1/2 tsp dried dill weed (optional)
Coat chicken with egg and then dip in crumbs. Place on a wire rack for 10 minutes to dry it out.
Heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat. Fry the chicken 2-3 minutes on each side. Immediately sprinkle grated parmesan top of thin parts the minute you flip it.
Sprinkle grated parmesan on top of thick parts just before you continue cooking it in the oven. 350F for 3-5 minutes while you keep the rest under a foil tent to keep warm.
While the oven is working, you can start your simple lemon-butter sauce.
Drain the grease from the skillet. Add the lemon juice on the pan and heat it until it boils. Add butter and stir until it's melted. Season with Chives, dill and salt.
Spoon the sauce over chicken and voila! Breaded chicken that is soooo soft and juicy, sauce that is tasty and tangy... a meal that will surely be a 'regular' in your monthly menu
