You Can Cook: Fried Chicken

So you think you can't cook? Really, now. You've already made hamburgers and baked potatoes - now is not the time to stop - it's on to learning your next main dish: chicken.

Difficulty: *

Ingredients:

  • 4 Boneless, skinless chicken breast filets (about 1 pound)
  • 2 cups breadcrumbs, plain or Italian seasoning
  • 1 egg, beaten
Method:
  1. Thoroughly clean chicken breasts, cutting off any fat.
  2. Dip in egg and then in breadcrumbs
Cooking Options:
  • Bake at 350 for 30 minutes if using a regular oven; flip at halfway mark.
  • Bake at 325 for 30 minutes if using a convection oven; flip at halfway mark.
  • Fry in a frying pan at medium high heat for 7-9 minutes on each side.
How to know if it's done:
  • It is VERY easy to overcook chicken, so watch very carefully during the last 25% of cooking time. Chicken, when fully cooked, should have no pink inside, but should still ooze juice when compressed.
