Carole Rosten


3 whole chicken breasts or 6 halves (boned & skinned)
salt and pepper
2 eggs well beaten (add 1 tbsp. of water)
1 cup fine dry bread crumbs (preferably from Italian or French bread)*
2 tbsp. salad oil
3 tbsp. margarine
lemon quarters

*to bread cumb mixture you can also add grated lemon rind, parsley and grated parmesean cheese)

Place chicken between sheets of waxed paper and flatten by pounding with a rolling pin.
Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper. Dust lightly with flour. Shake off excess.
Dip pieces in egg, then roll in bread crumbs. Press on crumbs with your palms. (Best to let rest for hour so crumbs adhere better when sauteing.)
Cook over moderate heat until golden and crisp, tender inside but not dry, 5-7 minutes on each side.
Place on paper towel to remove excess coating. Keep hot on warm serving platter until all chicken is cooked. Serve hot with lemon quarters.
