Crunchy Breaded Chicken Recipe From The Chiappa Sisters

  • Serves: 4
  • Preparation time: 25 minutes

Method

This traditional Milanese dish makes for soothing comfort food and your baby or toddler will love the crunchy texture of the topping

  1. Slice each chicken breast horizontally across the middle to make 4 fillets. Cover with cling film and, using a meat mallet or a rolling pin, pound each fillet until it is about 0.5cm thick.
  2. In a shallow dish, beat the eggs and season with salt and pepper. Place the breadcrumbs on a plate and mix in the herbs.
  3. Take each piece of chicken and dip it first in the egg, then coat in the herby breadcrumbs.
  4. Melt the butter with the oil in a frying pan over a medium heat. When frothy, cook the chicken for about 2 to 5 minutes on each side, until cooked through. You may need to cook the chicken in batches, depending on the size of your pan – use a teaspoon of butter and olive oil per chicken piece. (Use more butter or a little oil if the breadcrumbs have soaked it up before you turn the chicken, or if you want your cotolette to be extra crunchy.)
  5. Serve with the lemon wedges, griddled courgettes and carrots and a drizzle of pesto.
