Mozzarella chicken escalope

I wanted to make something easy yet tasty for dinner, yet I did not have any breadcrumbs for the chicken I made my own breadcrumbs by breaking apart two pieces of bread. So you can always be imaginative and creative, and end up with a delicious meal inshAllah :) (although using ready made breadcrumbs meant the final look wasn't as professional looking)

  • Skill level: Easy
  • Serves: 6 people
  • Prep time: 10 mins
  • Cooking time: 10 mins 
What you will need:

3 chicken breasts, each breast cut lengthways in half
1 cup breadcrumbs
1 tsp salt
1 tsp black pepper
1 tsp paprika
1 tbsp fresh coriander leaves, chopped
1 tbsp lemon zest
100g mozzarella cheese, shredded finely
2 eggs
vegetable oil for frying

How to make:

1) Prepare the chicken, and set aside. In a flat dish, place the breadcrumbs, salt, black pepper, paprika, coriander, lemon and cheese and mix well

2) In a separate bowl beat the eggs. Heat the vegetable oil on medium heat to shallow fry the chicken.

3) Dip the chicken breast in the eggs, coating both sides, then into the breadcrumb mixture and place into the hot oil. Cook for 5 minutes each side or until golden brown, then place onto kitchen paper to drain excess oil before serving

Serve with chips, salad, vegetables, or whatever you like. Enjoy the simplicity and ease of this recipe, but most importantly, the deliciousness!
