Yum yum crumbed chicken!

Crumbed chicken is a tasty treat and one of the house favourites. Serve in wraps, on its own, with a salad or chips, this is versatile. We either fry or bake these so I have included both methods below.

Cook up a big batch and you’ve got lunch sorted for a few days with wraps/sammies!

Ingredients:

  • 400g chicken breast
  • panko crumbs
  • salt, pepper and paprika
  • 2-3 eggs
  • flour
  • three bowls
  • plate
  • either oven or large frying pan
  • Oil
  • Sharp knife and chopping board
  • Sink of warm, soapy water

  • Dredge chicken slice in flour, dip in egg, coat in crumb and place on plate
  • Repeat for all slices and then wash hands.
  • Heat up pan on medium-high.
