Breaded chicken can be made fairly easily. I like making a lot at once because these freeze beautifully. You can eat these as is with you side of choice or you can use them for making meals like chicken Parmesan. Whatever you decide, this is what you need for these:
Makes 12 Milanesas
2 cups white flour
2 cups bread crumbs
1 ½ tsp. garlic powder
½ tsp. paprika
½ tsp. cumin
Salt & Pepper
2 eggs – lightly beaten
3 whole skinless, boneless chicken breasts – about 6 oz. each
Place the flour in a shallow pan. Add 1 tsp. garlic powder, the paprika and cumin. Add salt and pepper. Mix well and set aside.
Place the bread crumbs in another shallow pan and add ½ garlic powder. Add salt and pepper and mix well. Set aside.
Place the eggs in a bowl and beat lightly.
Cut each breast in half. Using a sharp knife, butterfly each half breast. Cut these in half as well.
Place the chicken on a board and pound with a meat mallet. If you would prefer, place the chicken between two pieces of plastic wrap. Pound the meat until thin but do not beat it to a pulp.
Place each individual piece the flour. Shake off the excess. Place each piece – one by one – into the eggs. Shake off the excess. Place each piece into the bread crumbs and coat well. Shake off the excess.
Place some oil in a skillet and heat well. Add the milanesas into the pan and allow browning on the bottom. Flip and finish cooking. The process should take about 7 to 8 minutes in total.
Place the cooked milanesas on a plate lined with paper towels. Serve and enjoy!
