Set out small 3 bowls. In the first bowl, crack one egg. Add salt, black pepper & mild chili powder or paprika to taste. Beat with whisk or fork.

Step 3

Place the flour in second bowl & breadcrumbs in third. Station the bowls in order of flour, egg & bread crumbs.


Step 4

Thoroughly coat one raw chicken breast in flour on both sides. Then, transfer chicken to the egg bowl & turn over to absorb. Lastly, dredge chicken in bread crumbs on both sides.

Optional: For a crispier coating, dip chicken a second time into the egg & bread crumbs.

Heat 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil in a pan over medium heat. When the oil starts to glisten, add the chicken breast.

Remove chicken breast from the pan and place on a paper-towel covered plate to rest.
