  • 1
    1/2 cup All-Purpose Flour
    2 large Eggs
    2 Cups Coarse Bread Crumbs
    Kosher Salt & Freshly Ground Black Pepper

    Put a large skillet over medium-high heat.
  • 3
    4 Chicken Thighs; pounded to a 1/4 inch thickness
    Kosher Salt & Freshly Ground Black Pepper
    Season both sides of Chicken Thighs with Salt and Pepper. Working with one piece of meat at a time, dredge the Chicken in the Flour, making sure to coast both sides well. Shake off the excess. Dip the Chicken into the beaten Eggs, allowing the excess to drip off. Finally, lay the Chicken in the Bread Crumbs, turning and pressing to fully coat both sides.

    Olive Oil
    Add the Olive Oil to the preheated pan. Arrange all 4 pieces of Chicken in the pan and cook until golden brown, about 3 minutes. Flip and cook until light golden brown, about 2 minutes.

    Helpful Tips:
    1. A butcher will pound out the chicken thighs for you.
    2. When breading anything, remember FEBruary: flour, egg, breadcrumbs.
    3. Schmaltz, rendered chicken fat, would work well as a frying liquid.
    4. To save time, season your flour and breadcrumbs instead of seasoning the actual chickn.
