Easy Breaded Chicken


This post may contain affiliate links.

Years ago, I learned how to make easy breaded chicken from my husbands boss at work.  I know it’s weird, but that is where I learned the basics.  He had once worked in a kitchen at a country club and shared his knowledge with us when my husband and I were newly married.

Over the years now, I have developed my own simple recipe for breaded chicken and figured I’d share it with you today.  There aren’t really any exact measurements, but it is simple and you really can’t mess it up.  I

like to use a combination of  Italian bread crumbs with panko bread crumbs.  I like to use the Italian bread crumbs because it already has the seasoning in it.  If you only have regular bread crumbs, then just mix in some Italian seasoning.  This method will also work with pork chops too.

Thanks so much for this. This might sound weird, but I spent the first couple of years of my life in Rome, then travelled around the globe. Now I’m living in Australia, with my Chinese wife, and son we had whilst in Japan! Truly internationalized, eh? Anyway, I’ve been trying to rediscover the smells and tastes of my youth with some authentic Italian recipes like these, best I’ve found so far! Thanks again, I’ll see if I can add the feed to my google reader tonight, though my son usually does that for me!

Adrienne- in my grocery store the panko is near the flour on the baking aisle. Maybe try there!

I have found it in my local grocery stores and chain supermarkets as well usually next to the breadcrumbs and also in the Asian section of the stores.
