Honestly one of my favorite recipes to date! Not my absolute healthiest recipe, but one you need to have in your life ASAP. If you don't need the 6 servings, save the leftovers to cut up for salads, or just to heat up and have again. So delicious!
3 chicken breasts, sliced in half the long ways to make 6 thin chicken breasts
10 Tbsp. butter, divided (may need a 2-3 more Tbsp. for frying the chicken depending on how long it takes to cook...)... and that's why maybe it's not my healthiest recipe. ;)
1 cup bread crumbs
1 tsp. cayenne
1 tsp. salt
1/2 cup parmesan cheese
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. onion powder
1 tsp. paprika
1. Make sure chicken is defrosted, and make tiny diagonal slices through the top and bottom of each piece to ensure it cooks through well. Set aside.
2. Combine 4 Tbsp. of the butter + all dry ingredients in a small bowl.
3. In another shallow bowl, melt the remaining 4 Tbsp. butter.
4. Take each piece of chicken and dip in the shallow bowl of butter and then directly in the Kodiak Cakes mixture.
5. Melt 2 Tbsp. butter in a large skillet, and place each piece of chicken on top, letting it cook on each side for about 4-5 minutes or until chicken is cooked through and the outside is nice and crispy. As you add more chicken or flip the chicken and you feel like your skillet needs a little more butter to prevent burning, add in more as needed. (I had to add in a couple more Tbsp.)
6. Your chicken should be browned, cooked through, and your kitchen will smell delicious. Serve immediately. Sprinkle some parmesan cheese over top, and dig in!
