by HK .

A german main course meal made of deep fried boneless chicken. A dish simpler yet delicious!


  • 2 Chicken breasts
  • 2 Egg
  • 1 Cup Breadcrumbs
  • ½ Cups Oil
  • 1 Pinch Salt
  • 1 Pinch Pepper
  • 2 Cups All-purpose flour
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    Difficulty: Easy Total time: 20 mins Total ingredients: 7

    Step 2

    Slice off around 1 inch cutlets from Chicken breasts with a sharp knife. Wrap them in plastic one by one.

    Step 3

    Now flatten the chicken cutlet to 1/4 inch thickness with kitchen hammer. I used wooden spoon instead.

    Step 4

    When all the slices are flattened, spread them on a plate and season with salt and pepper.

    Step 5

    In a wide shallow bowl, beat two eggs.

    Step 6

    In a separate bowl, take all-purpose flour. Coat the cutlet first in flour (picture missing). Then dip in eggs.

    Step 7

    Now spread them over breadcrumbs. You can buy breadcrumbs from market or make them at home. Press in breadcrumbs gently and pat off excess.

    Step 8

    Let them sit over a platter while you do others.

    Step 9

    Now in a pan, heat oil and put chicken cutlets in it. Cook two chicken cutlets at a time with 5 mins each side. You'll know they are done when they turn golden brown.

    Step 10

    Here, serve them hot with lemon and mayo-chilli sauce. You can do the same with shrimps.
