Tender Breaded Chicken Strips

Cook Time: 20 min.
Calories: 361

Smeared with mayo instead of eggs, and rolled in breadcrumbs

☼ 2 chicken breasts, with skin
☼ 2 Tbs mayonnaise
☼ A dash of salt and pepper
☼ Breadcrumbs to taste (preferably panko*)
☼ Olive oil to taste
☼ Lemon


(1) Trim away the excess fat from the meat and remove any tendons, then use the blunt edge of a kitchen knife to evenly tenderize the meat, and cut each breast into four strips.

(2) Smear with salt and pepper.  Spread mayonnaise on skinless side of strips, and press firmly into breadcrumbs.

(3) Heat a frying pan and add olive oil. Place strips in frying pan with the breadcrumb-coated sides down, and fry over low heat. When breadcrumbs are pleasantly browned, flip over and fry until skin is crispy, then remove from heat.

(4) Arrange on a plate and garnish with lemon.
