Manuel's Curry Chicken

This is the only recipe my husband has ever really invented (besides potato chips on sandwiches) and it's absolutely delicious! So in his honor, it is named after him. Its a chicken meets schnitzel masterpiece! Crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside.

Manuel's Curry Chicken

  • 4-6 chicken breasts, thawed
  • 1 tsp yellow curry powder
  • dash of salt
  • dash of pepper
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups bread crumbs
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup oil
Cut chicken into long strips. Take two soup plates and add flour to one and eggs in the other. Add salt and pepper to eggs. Put bread crumbs into a tupperware container with lid. Add curry to bread crumbs.

Roll chicken in flour and coat on all sides. Dip into egg mixture then place in sealed bread crumb container and shake well. Place oil in skillet (on medium heat) and fry chicken until white in the center about 2-3 minutes on each side. Be careful not to increase temperature of oil or you'll burn the outer part of the chicken and the inside will still be pink. Serve hot with your favorite dipping sauce.
