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

 
Softening pears
Some pears come to market rock hard, but if left at room temperature they will soften. Tucking them into a sealed paper bag with a banana speeds the process.
