In a shallow dish, add the egg, a pinch of salt & pepper and whisk. Optional: add a pinch of cayenne pepper
Add the flour to another shallow dish and the breadcrumbs in a third dish.
Dip the chicken in the flour and then in the egg. Finally, dip the chicken in the breadcrumb mixture and coat on both sides.
For a thicker breading, dip again in the egg and the breadcrumbs.
Add 3-6 tablespoons of oil in a frying pan and heat to medium-high heat. When the oil is nice and hot, add the chicken. Tip: Test the oil by throwing in a few pieces of breadcrumbs. The oil is hot enough if they sizzle!
Cook the chicken for about 4 minutes on each side, or until golden.
Remove the chicken and place them on a paper towel lined plate to absorb the excess oil.
Cut the chicken into strips.
Serve the chicken with a dressed salad. Tip: Try vinegar and lemon juice for a light dressing. Enjoy!
