4 chicken fillets
1 egg white
½ cup of butter milk
2-3 tablespoons of flour
3-4 tablespoons of breadcrumbs
2 tablespoons of paprika
½ teaspoon of cayenne
2 tablespoons of vegetable oil
Salt, pepper to taste
three large plates
Preheat oven to 250°C/480°F.
Oil a baking sheet with some of the vegetable oil. Set aside.
Wash the chicken fillets thoroughly. Dry with paper towels.Place them on a plate.
Next, combine the egg white and butter milk on another plate. Whisk the two ingredients together until they’re well blended.
On yet another third dish, combine the flour, bread crumbs, paprika, and cayenne. Add just a tiny bit of salt and pepper to taste..
Then dip one of the chicken fillets into buttermilk mixture. Turn the fillet to coat it evenly. Shake off any excess liquid.
Take the coated chicken fillet and dip it in the flour and breadcrumb mixture. Make sure to shake off any excess or ‘loose’ coating.
Put 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil in a saute pan. Place pan over medium heat. Lightly saute the fillets one minute each side. When these are baked later they'll be nicely crunchy and juicy inside!
Place the fillet on the oiled baking sheet.
Repeat the above directions with remaining fillets, one piece at a time.
Lightly brush the breaded chicken fillets with the remaining vegetable oil. Bake on the top rack of preheated oven until the coating is crispy and golden. This should take about 12 to 15 minutes. Keep an eye on things because the chicken can dry it very quickly.
Because I suggested that this oven baked chicken recipe is great people on a diet, it seems appropriate to serve this with a nice green garden salad and a hearty choice of veggies!!
