Chicken Escalopes

8 Apr

I Love food. I always have and always will. I also love to cook and will do at every opportunity. So when I was given a cook book for children called ‘You can cook‘ by Annabel Karmel i had to try it out and at my aunties, it was the perfect time. We chose to try out the Chicken Escalopes and here is how we got on:

2 chicken breasts (no skin)

First off start by blending 2 or 3 slices of bread in your food processor.

Sprinkle salt and pepper on top of the chicken, then cover in the egg then cover in breadcrumbs, depending on how crispy you want your chicken.
