I made this on a whim. Had the stuff and a taste for something different. My daughter is home from college for the summer and my husband was home so we all sat down for a family "table" dinner. I served corn on the cob and rice with this chicken. They loved it! Even made sandwiches with the left overs.

    Mix water and egg with whisk in flat bowl for dipping. Dip each chicken slice in water-egg mixture. Then press in bread crumbs. I salt pepper and garlic salt them now. Then put in heated oil. Fry each piece for a few minutes til golden brown and turn cooking other side same. It is a continuous thing dipping, breading and frying as about one breast sliced will fill most skillets.
