recipe

  • Step 1
    Set out 3 bowls. In the first, crack the egg. Season with salt & pepper & whisk it. Add a pinch of cayenne or chili powder for kick (optional)!
  • Step 2
    In the second bowl, add the flour. In the third, the breadcrumbs.
  • Step 3
    Dip the chicken in the flour bowl first. Then, dredge it in the egg. Transfer to the breadcrumbs & thoroughly coat on both sides.
  • Step 4
    For a thicker breading, dip again in the egg & breadcrumbs.
  • Step 5
    Add oil to frying pan & heat over medium-high heat. When the oil glistens & is nice and hot, add the chicken.
  • Step 6
    Pan fry the chicken for about 4 minutes on the first side & 3 minutes on the second. Be sure it's cooked through but also cooked to your liking.
  • Step 7
    Transfer the chicken to a paper towel covered plate to drain excess oil.

    Cut chicken into strips. Serve alongside the bed of spinach & enjoy!
