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, dip it first into the egg mixture and then place into the crumbs, coating the chicken well.

Place the chicken in the frying pan and fry for 2 minutes on each side until the crumbs are crispy and the chicken is cooked through but still moist.

Serve hot with fresh lemon.

Tip of the day

 
Basic basil care
Basil wilts quickly, but will perk up when left in cool water for about 30 minutes. Then blot the leaves dry and store them at room temperature in a tightly sealed bag. If basil is stored in the refrigerator, it turns black.
