Recipe Ingredients for Parmesan Crusted Chicken

180 g chicken breasts
1/2 cup Panko Breadcrumbs
3/4 cup Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, grated
1 egg
1 kosher salt
1 lemon pepper
1 granulated garlic
1 dried parsley
1 dried oregano

Recipe Directions for Parmesan Crusted Chicken

  1. Season the chicken on both sides. Allow the seasoning to penetrate the meat for 5 minutes.

  2. Meanwhile, mix together the Panko and cheese together. Add dried parsley, dried oregano, granulated garlic (or garlic powder), black pepper. You don?t need to add salt to this because the cheese holds a considerable amount of saltiness already, but if you do add salt, please don?t get all hypertension with it.

  3. Arrange 3 shallow dishes/bowls next to each other, with flour in the first dish, the beaten egg in the second dish, and the panko/cheese mixture in the last dish.

  4. (This can get messy so you can use a fork for the next steps)

  5. Coat one piece of the seasoned chicken in the flour on both sides and shake off the excess.

  6. Dip the flour coated chicken into the eggwash, on both sides, and let the big globs drip off for a second or two.

  7. Toss the eggy/floury chicken into the panko/cheese mixture. Press the panko/cheese mixture into the chicken well so that it?s evenly coated.

  8. Repeat with the next piece.

  9. Place into the fridge for about 10 minutes. This allows the crumb coating to really adhere to the chicken so that it doesn?t fall off in the hot oil.

  10. When ready to pan fry, drizzle a very thin layer of extra virgin olive oil and 2 tbsp of butter into a skillet over medium high heat. Once the butter starts to foam and bubble up, this means it?s hot enough to fry.

  11. Gently place your chicken into the skillet and cook until golden brown on both sides, about 3-5min per side.

  12. Drain on paper towels and lightly season with a little salt while it?s still very hot.

  13. Serve immediately.
