SMASHED CHICKENI nicked this from one of the first cooking shows I remember watching back in the 70ís. It was called Cooking With Keith. He used rabbit. What I remember most about this show is that Keith always had a glass of wine in his hand and would be smashed by the end of the show
Whisk the egg into the milk with a couple drops of hot sauce in a flat bowl. Mix the breadcrumbs and your herbs and spices together on a plate. Start heating the oil in a large frying pan. You want it hot but not smoking.
Lay out a large piece of wax paper on the counter and place a boneless chicken breast (or thigh or any other boneless meat - try pork) on it and cover with another piece of wax paper. Now the fun part. You want to beat the meat flat - really smash it. I donít know how you beat your meat but Iíve used a rolling pin, a sauce pan, a can of baked beansÖ It just doesnít matter. You want it about a 1/4 inch thick.
Dip your meat in the milk mixture, dredge it in the breadcrumbs and plop it into the frying pan. These only take a couple minutes per side so watch them. Flip when golden brown. They are done when cooked through.
