Breaded Garlic Chicken

A simple chicken recipe that requires only a handful of ingredients.

Ingredients:

2 boneless skinless breasts

3 cloves of garlic, finely chopped

1 egg

5 tbsps breadcrumbs

Salt and pepper to taste

Oil for frying

Equipment:

Mallet

Using a mallet, pound each chicken breast until it is less than a quarter inch thick.

You can either put the chicken breast in a polythene bag, then pound or use some cling film one on the bottom then the other on the top of the chicken breast. Then get to pounding.

In a skillet, heat two tablespoons of vegetable oil. Once hot enough, gently place one of the chicken breasts. Let it cook for 4-5 minutes on each side or until the breadcrumbs turn a golden brown colour.

Flip and cook the other side. Once cooked, place the chicken breast on a paper towel covered plate to drain any excess oil.

Serve with some potatoes, sauce and stir fry veggies.
