For dinner, we had pan fried parmesan crusted chicken. It was lots easier than I expected and better, too. You see, a while back, we had bought these Parmesan Crisps which were marketed for snacking. They were not good but they cost about $10 so I didn’t want to just toss them. I decided to use them as the coating for chicken. And it turned out good.
Parmesan Crusted Chicken
chicken tenders, thawed and dried
1 egg and a splash of milk, stirred up
about 1 1/2 C crushed Parmesan Crisps for every 5 tenders
olive oil for frying
Heat pan well. (If it isn’t hot and well oiled, the coating will stick to the pan and come off of your chicken.) Place a piece of chicken in the egg mixture, turning to coat. Move to the crushed Parmesan Crisps and coat all over. Place in hot pan. Cook about 5 minutes on one side. Using tongs, turn carefully. Cook about 5 minutes on the other side, checking to ensure the the chicken is cooked through.
The girls all enjoyed this so I think I know how to use the rest of these crisps up. An easy and yummy dinner! We served it with cucumber slices, mashed cauliflower, green beans, and broccoli.
