How to Make Cheese-Fried Chicken Breasts

Step-by-Step

  • 1Place flour in a mixing bowl and slowly pour in the beer while mixing.
  • 2Add the egg white, pepper and desired salt and mix well.
  • 3Taste for salt and pepper and add if desired.
  • 4Cover the bowl and set aside for 30 minutes before using.
  • 5Combine onions and oil in a small dutch oven or casserole, place in the oven and turn temperature to 375.
  • 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).
  • 18Pour the sauce onto a platter and arrange the chicken breasts on top.
