So, Mr. Not Your Bubbe's Kitchen likes to cook too, and as much as it pains me to admit it, he's good. And I mean, he's real, real, real good. But if you're like me, you're a control freak and sometimes don't want your manly other half to be in the kitchen...but sometimes, well, you have to just let them be. And something amazing could happen... He may clean his mess, too!
So, the other night, he and I decided on a quick easy dinner- pan fried
chicken with creamed spinach and. gulp....I don't know why I am admitting this, Mrs. Not Your Bubbe's Kitchens failed scalloped potatoes. Yes, I said it, failed. So sad. If those suckers had a little more spice and salt to them, and were cooked 15 minutes longer...They would have been great.
So, today, we will post about the Mr's chicken that is so easy anyone can do it.
The ingredients for Mr. Bubbe's Kitchen super easy pan fried chicken:
1 pound boneless skinless chicken tenders
1/2 cup of flour, for dredging
1 egg mixed with 2-3 tbsp of skim milk
1//2 cup plain breadcrumbs seasoned with kosher salt, freshly ground black pepper, and a dash of cayenne- Mr. Bubbe knows sometimes my heat radar is a bit sensitive...so he chose to make these on the milder side for me; but if he was making them just for him, he would have loaded cayenne in there!
1-2 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil for the pan
Line your pans like this:
Here's how easy this is.
Take piece of chicken. Dredge in flour. Shake off excess.
Take chicken, place in egg wash. Shake of excess.
(Hint, Mr. Not your Bubbe's Kitchen did the wet hand/dry hand technique and it works out well. This is what it sounds. You use one hand for the dry ingredients...and one hand for the wet.)
In your already hot, oiled pan, drop chicken in. Depending on thickness, the chicken will take
about 5 minutes per side. They'll be golden brown, moist, and delicious. Trust me.
The facts... but please keep in mind, I included all the flour and all the breadcrumbs when in reality you shouldn't need all of them! As I say, better to over estimate than under estimate :)
