Our Breaded Chicken Recipe

Contains gluten and dairy.

You will need…
1 lb chicken breast tenders or thinly-sliced breast pieces
Several swirls of olive oil
Lots of butter for the pan
Whole Foods 365 brand breadcrumbs, plain variety
1 clove garlic
Juice of half a lemon or 1 clementine
Salt

Directions:
Cut chicken into smaller pieces that are similar in size, removing the tendons and any fat or skin.

Put cleaned chicken pieces on a plate with several swirls of olive oil. The olive oil will make the breadcrumbs stick to the chicken.

Once all of the chicken pieces are coated in olive oil, heat up your sauté pan with a swirl of olive oil and a generous pat of butter, over medium heat. You may need to be just over medium, depending on how hot your stove gets. Put a clove of garlic in the pan so you can see the garlic sizzle when the pan is hot enough.

 

In the meantime, begin to dip each piece of chicken into the breadcrumbs, flipping over to coat both sides. When the pan is hot, add in the chicken pieces one by one. Also sprinkle a pinch of salt over the chicken.

It’s time to flip the chicken once the white color is starting to creep up the sides of the chicken on the side that is facing up. Flip all of the pieces, and cook them on the second side to also achieve a crisp, golden brown exterior.

 

Finally, turn the heat to low and add in your lemon or clementine juice to finish cooking for just a couple of minutes.

 

Then serve with rice or potatoes and some vegetables. Enjoy!
