  • 2
    cup
    breadcrumbs
  • 1

Method

 
Place a large frying pan over a medium heat.
Place the chicken breasts between two sheets of cling-wrap and thin out with a rolling pin or mallet.
Combine the breadcrumbs with the cheese, salt and paprika. Place this in a shallow, wide bowl.
Place the beaten eggs in a similar bowl (big enough to dunk the chicken into).
To coat the chicken, dunk it first into the egg mixture and then place into the crumbs, coating the chicken well and patting down the crumbs.
Place the chicken in the frying pan and allow to fry for 2 minutes per side until the crumbs are crispy and the chicken is cooked through but still moist.
Serve hot with fresh lemon.

Tip of the day

 
Baobab leaves
African cooks use leaves from the massive baobab tree to thicken their stews. Like okra, the leaves give the dish a congealing texture that's characteristic of West African stews. Okra will give a similar effect if you can't find baobab leaves.
