  • 4 boneless chicken breasts 6 ounces each
  • kosher salt to taste
  • Freshly Ground Black Pepper to taste
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 large eggs beaten
  • 1 cup breadcrumbs homemade 3 slices of bread, or plain store bought
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • lemons for serving
  • Flat Leaf parsley chopped, for garnish


  • Slice lemons into wedges and chop parsley. Set aside.
  • Place chicken on Large Cutting Board, and cover with plastic wrap.  Use the Meat Tenderizer to pound the chicken to¼ inch thickness. Season with salt and black pepper.
  • Place 3 slices of bread, cut in half, in the Manual Food Processor and pump the handle until you have breadcrumbs.
  • Place the flour, egg, and breadcrumbs in separate Coating Trays or 3 separate shallow bowls. Add garlic powder to breadcrumbs and mix to combine.
    Dredge each piece of chicken first in the flour, then coat with egg mixture and finally, the breadcrumbs.
  • Preheat oven to 200°F/95°C if you are cooking the chicken in batches, to keep it warm.
  • Heat the olive oil in the Nonstick Sauté and Steam Pan or a large skillet over medium-high heat.  When oil is shimmering, add chicken. Cook 3-4 minutes per side, or until golden & cooked through.
  • Garnish with parsley and lemon wedges and serve immediately.


I HIGHLY recommend making your own breadcrumbs for this recipe, if at all possible.  I feel this brought the dish to the next level of goodness!
Store any leftovers in a sealed container for up to three days, or freeze in a freezer safe container up to three months.
