Servings: 4 people
- 2 large chicken breasts
- 1 cup (140g) fine breadcrumbs ,such as panko
- olive oil for frying
- 1 knob butter
- 1 squeeze of lemon juice
- salt and pepper to season
First, you need to bash your chicken breasts out thin or use pre-cut chicken cutlets from the supermarket for ease if they're available.
To bash the chicken, place one breast in between two pieces of cling film and beat it with a meat mallet or rolling pin until thin (around 1/4inch thick)
Add the breadcrumbs to a large plate and season with a good pinch f salt and pepper. Press each side of the chicken into the breadcrumbs firmly 2-3 times, repeat with all the cutlets.
Heat a good glug of olive oil in a large frying pan and when hot add the chicken cutlets. Once crispy and golden on one side turn them over and squeeze over lemon juice then add a knob of butter.
Continue to fry the cutlets until crispy and golden on both sides, remove and sit on kitchen paper or a draining rack for a couple seconds. Sprinkle with an extra pinch of salt.
Serve hot with salad or your favourite sides.
