How to Make Cheese-Fried Chicken Breasts

  • 6Add tomatoes and add peppers to the dutch oven.
  • 7Add cumin, cream and salt as desired.
  • 8Cook 30 minutes, remove from the oven and scrape the contents into a blender or food processor.
  • 9Blend until smooth and set aside.
  • 10Meanwhile, place a piece of cheese under the skin of each breast, dredge each breast in flour and shake off the excess.
  • 11Heat the frying oil in a heavy skillet over medium heat on the stove.
  • 12When the oil is hot enough for frying (350), dip each breast in the beer batter and let the excess run off.
  • 13Place skin-side down in the oil and fry until golden.
  • 14Turn and fry other side, about 1 minute per side.
  • 15Remove breasts from the oil as they are done, drain on paper towels and transfer to a baking dish.
  • 16Place the chicken breasts in a preheated 375 degree oven for 15 minutes.
  • 17Place tomato sauce in a saucepan and reheat. (If the mixture is too thin, place it in a saucepan over high heat and boil down).
