Lemon Chicken

This was easy, quick, has flavorĀ  *and* still got two thumbs up from the kids, so this definitely goes in the ‘make again’ pile.

What you need:

  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup or so of flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup plain bread crumbs
  • 2 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1 tsp dried parsley
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • zest of two lemons
  • 3 large chicken breasts, cut in half and pounded thin with the flat side if a mallet

What to do:

you need three shallow bowls. In the first, put the flour. In the second, put the eggs. In the third put the bread crumbs, seasonings and lemon zest and mix it well. In a large pan, heat the oil over medium heat. Dredge your chicken in the flour, dip in the eggs and then press into the breadcrumb mixture, being sure to coat both sides and press down on the breadcrumbs so they stick. Put the chicken in the pan and cook until golden on both sides. Cool on a paper-towel and you’re done!
