  • Cut chicken breast in half. 
  • Pound chicken with a meat tenderizer to create an even thickness. 
  • Set aside until ready to use. 
  • Create a breading station by adding flour in one dish, eggs in another dish, and bread crumbs in the third dish. 
  • Add salt and pepper to the eggs.
  • Beat the eggs. 
  • Add the desired spices to the bread crumbs. 
  • Mix with a fork to combine. 
  • Dredge the chicken with the flour. 
  • Shake off any excess flour. 
  • Place the floured chicken in the egg mixture. 
  • Make sure to coat the entire chicken with the egg mixture. 
  • Lastly, place the chicken in the bread crumbs. 
  • Again, make sure the chicken is completely coated with the bread crumbs. 
  • Set aside and repeat until all chicken pieces are coated. 
  • Heat the oil in a skillet. 
  • Pan-fry the chicken in batch, about 3-4 minutes per side. 
  • Transfer each cooked chicken to a plate with a paper towel. 
  • Continue frying until all the chicken pieces are cooked. 
  • Serve with a salad, french fries, and your favorite salsa.



If you fry the chicken in a deep fryer, it will only take 4 minutes to cook. 
Oven Instructions:
