I saw this receipe on a cooking show that used wings and legs, no flour and only 1/4 c of parmesan cheese. I don't like bone-in chicken and love the flavor of cheese so I customized it to my own taste and tried it out the first time on my mother-in-law who LOVED it!! Talk about trial by fire! lol

How to Make Italian "Fried" Chicken


  • 1If your chick breast are not uniformly thin, using a meat mallet (or wrap your chicken in plastic wrap and use a rolling pin)flatten the breast to thin out. Season both sides with sea salt. Set aside.
  • 2In a shallow dish, beat together the eggs and milk. Set aside.
  • 3In another shallow dish, mix together the dry ingredients.
  • 4Place your oil in your frying pan and begin heating on medium-high heat. While the oil is heatin up, Dredge each chicken breast in the milk & egg mixture then in the dry mixture. Gently dredge once more in the milk & egg mixture once more before dredging one last time in the dry mixture. Gently place in the now hot oil CAREFULLY. Fry the chicken breast on each side for 5 minutes ONLY!! After frying on each side, place on paper towels to drain any excess oil. While the chicken is frying, preheat the oven to 360 degrees.
  • 5Once all the chicken has been fried, place on a baking sheet an inch or two apart and bake in the oven for 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and enjoy the best, moistest, "fried" chicken you'll ever have! =)
