Cheesy Fried Chicken

Cheesy Fried Chicken - Rebekah and her Rambings. An easy skillet fried chicken loaded with cheese.So I have been living in a hotel for the last few days and will for the rest of the work week because I STARTED MY JOB ON MONDAY! I have been learning a ton, but haven’t gotten to post any of the super awesome recipes I made last week when I was finishing everything in my fridge. This chicken dish is one of my favorites. I don’t eat it a lot because it has a good amount of gluten in it, but it is worth the headache that I get. Anyway, this thing is cheesy and fried, what more can a girl ask for?

What you need:

  • 1 large boneless, skinless chicken breast, pounded and butterflied
  • Lawry’s seasoning salt
  • 1/4 cup of flour
  • 1 egg
  • splash of water
  • 1/2 cup of your favorite breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 cup of your favorite shredded cheese (I used mozzarella this time but have used cheddar or colby jack)
  • vegetable oil for frying (try to cover the bottom of the skillet)

Directions:

  • Season your chicken generously with seasoning salt
  • Beat the egg and water together, place the flour on a baking sheet or plate, mix the cheese and breadcrumbs together and place in a separate pile from the flour
  • Cheesy Fried Chicken - Rebekah and her Rambings. An easy skillet fried chicken loaded with cheese.Dip the chicken into the flour, then the egg, then the breadcrumb mixture. Really try and make sure all of the cheese gets onto the chicken.
  • Place the chicken onto a flat dish and refrigerate for about 15 minutes
  • Spray your skillet with cooking spray if it isn’t nonstick and then fill with oil so that the bottom of the pan is covered
  • Place the chicken into the skillet and cook on medium high. Turn every few minutes and cook until the chicken is cooked through.  I like mine crunchy because I really like crunchy cheese so I cook it for a little longer.
