Ever since I saw an image of this online, I’ve already wanted to hack the recipe.
Here’s my twist of the chicken parmesan. It can be a little messy, but it’s absolutely worth the effort!
What you’ll need:
1/2 kg chicken fillet (breast is ideal, but I prefer thighs)
1 cup flour (add if necessary)
2 tbsp salt
1/2 tbsp ground black pepper
1/2 cup cheddar cheese
1/2 cup parmesan cheese
7-8 Mozzarella cheese strips (number of strips depend on how much chicken fillet you have)
In a large bowl, mix the following:
Flour, salt, pepper, parmesan cheese, and cheddar cheese.
Beat the egg and then dip each chicken fillet in it.
Cover each piece with the breading that we made in step 1 and set aside on a plate. Continue this with all the other fillets.
Fry each piece over medium heat, with cooking oil just enough to cover the bottom half of each piece.
Each side is to be cooked for 5-6 minutes.
After flipping to cook the other side, put the mozzarella strip on top of each fillet during the last 2 minutes of cooking. This is to melt the mozzarella cheese on top of the fillet.
Take out of the pan and let it rest for two minutes to drain the oil.
Serve over salad or any pasta dish.
With or without Marinara sauce, this is a sure treat!
