Crispy Parmesan Chicken Tenders

As I mentioned before, my daughter is very selective on the types of meat she eats and this dish has never failed me or her. I like homemade tender because you know exactly what you are using. No fillers, no grounding the meats and just a few simple ingredients you can transform a plain chicken breast to delicious delight the entire family can enjoy.

I’ve tried baking these before but the chicken turns out to be dry. So I decided to stick with pan fry using minimal oil as I could. The chicken breast stays tender, juicy and has a nice bite to it. Hope you like it too!

Ingredients:
2 chicken breast (~5-6 ounces each)
1/3 cup all purpose flour
1 teaspoon of salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground peppers
2 eggs
1 cup panko
2/3 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese

Instructions:
1. Cut chicken breast into 1 1/2 inches thick and cut into strips or triangle shape to please the youngsters. Set aside.
2. Mix in salt, peppers and flour together in a big bowl, set aside.
3. Beat the eggs in a bowl. Set aside.
4. Mix grated parmesan cheese with panko in a baking pan.
5. Lightly dust the chicken in the flour mixture, next dip the chicken in the eggs and then evenly coat it with the panko. Continue this step until all chicken is completely coated.
6. Heat up a 10 inch skillet, filled up with cooking oil to about an inch thick (about 1 cup).
7. Once the oil started to glisten, slowly add in the chicken and pan fry 2 minutes on each side or until golden brown under medium heat.

You can add paprika and some cayenne powder to the flour mixture, or once the chicken is done cooking sprinkle some peppers flake over if you like some kick to it.
