RECIPE: Chicken Scallopini

We have been having chicken scallopini for a few weeks now! Not everyday of course, but umm, several times. It's so amazing! And you can have it with any kind of side and add any kind of seasonings and it's just moist and tender and delectable!

chicken breast, must be pounded thin [we found it in our market already flattened and labeled for 'scallopini']
seasoned breadcrumbs
salt and pepper to taste
egg [we used one for up to 1.5 lbs of chicken breast]
butter [we used 2 tbs per 1lb of chicken breast]
any other seasonings you might want!

stir the egg up in a bowl
add the salt, pepper and seasonings to the breadcrumbs on a plate
put the butter in a frying pan to melt and coat

Take each chicken piece and coat in egg, then bread, then fry.
It takes about 2 to 3 minutes on each side because they are so thin and perfect.

We've had this with all variety of seasoned rice, couscous and mixed vegetables and it's always perfect from sweet to savory to spicy. We've had other kinds of scallopini in the past, and they're all good, but this is cheap, versatile, and really incredibly delicious.
