Chicken Parmesan

Shelley Kunkel originally posted this recipe in What's for Dinner May 2009.

Chicken Parmesan

3 lbs boneless skinless chicken breast cubed
4 eggs beaten
1 cup milk
1 small package bread crumbs of stuffing
1 small container parmesan cheese
cooking oil (peanut or canola tastes good)
3 bowls (1 for each: egg wash, bread crumbs, parmesan cheese)
1 skillet, slotted spoon, fork, knife, & your hands
cutting board or plate
cookie sheet lined with foil & sprayed with canola oil

You can prepare the egg wash, bread crumbs, parmesan & cookie sheet stations before you begin cooking to speed things along.

Cut up the chicken into bite sized pieces or buy it precut. Pour enough cooking oil into a large skillet to cover half the chicken pieces & heat up the oil (preferably on medium-high heat). Set your oven on broil as well at this time. While the oil & oven are heating up make the egg wash using the eggs & milk & soak some chicken pieces in it. Pour some bread crumbs in a bowl. After the chicken is coated in egg transfer some pieces into the bread crumbs & cover completely (I use a fork & press each pieces into the crumbs). Check oil in skillet by carefully sprinkling some water on it when it splatters it's ready. Add breaded chicken to the preheated oil & cook until golden brown. Prepare cookie sheet if you haven't done so already. While some of the chicken is cooking repeat the process. After the chicken is golden brown remove them from the skillet & put them in the bowl of parmesan cheese - cover them well. Once coated transfer them to the cookie sheet & broil them for 30 to 60 SECONDS just enough time to melt the cheese. Set aside the cooked chicken until all the chicken is done. Serve over spaghetti with spaghetti sauce & a salad.
