Children (adults, too) always love to order chicken fingers or breaded chicken when they dine out.  Have you ever noticed that the flavor is only on the coating, not the chicken?  My then 5-year-old always came and told me, "Mommy, that's not your chicken.", after I convinced him to take a bite of it.  Even right now, my son is not big on ordering any breaded chicken anywhere just because he knows that this breaded chicken recipe is the only way to guarantee juicy and tastiest chicken he always has.

In my opinion, chicken breast is like a sponge.  Even though you don't marinate the meat ahead of time, it absorbs the flavors fairly quickly.

CHEF NOTES

Bear in mind that to make the ultimate best breaded chicken recipe is all about the layers of flavor you add in each coating.

You can make this breaded chicken recipe simply by adding salt and pepper for seasoning.  But my little man loves big flavor.  So, I use different seasonings to stir things up.  Here are some suggestions for you:

  • Buffalo Wing Rub
  • Italian Seasonings
  • Cajun Seasonings
  • Chicken Fry mix
  • The combination of equal quantity of grated Parmesan cheese and bread crumb

The options to spice up this breaded chicken recipe is endless.  Keep your mind open and you will realize how versatile it is and how many more breaded chicken dinners you can make.


Breaded Chicken Recipe and Instructions

Ingredients
4 (6-8 oz each) Boneless, skinless chicken breasts (butterflied and pounded with tenderizer or a heavy pan)
Plate #1 - 1 cup flour + 1 pinch of salt and pepper
Plate #2 - 2 eggs + 2 tbsp water + 1 pinch of salt
Plate #3 - 1 1/2 cup bread crumb + 1 pinch of salt and pepper (if you decided to have different flavors, add 2 teaspoon seasonings)
8 tablespoon Canola Oil (divided between 2 big skillets)
1/4 cup water (divided for adding on the meat before pounding)

  1. Butterfly the chicken by using a sharp paring knife starting from the thickest part of the chicken breast and carefully slice it into halves.  Once it is sliced open, it should look like an open book.
  2. Add about 1 tablespoon water on top of the meat, cover it with plastic wrap and pound out the meat with a meat tenderizer or a heavy pan.
  3. Assemble 3 separate plates of the following: flour, egg wash and bread crumbs.
  4. Divide canola oil into 2 big shallow skillets and heat oil at medium heat.
  5. Coat chicken on both sides in this order: flour, egg wash and bread crumb
  6. Cook about 3-5 minutes each side (another way to ensure the meat is thoroughly cooked through is using a fork.  If it can poke right through the meat easily without even any slight resistance that means it is done.)
  7. Transfer to a serving plate and cover with aluminum foil or keep the meat warm in 300F oven.
  8. Continue to cook the rest of the chicken (lower the heat if necessary for the second batch) and serve immediately.
