Crispy Crumbed Chicken Topped with Blue Cheese and Bacon

Crispy crunchy crumbed chicken fillet topped with blue cheese and bacon - what's not to like?


So easy to do there isn't even a real recipe! Just bash a chicken fillet between two sheet of cling film so it's nice and thin. Why? Because it will cook a lot quicker without drying out.





Crumbed Chicken with Blue Cheese and Bacon Topping

You can buy Panko (Japanese breadcrumbs) from any good supermarket.

ingredients:

1 x chicken breast fillet per person
2 slices of smoked back bacon per person
flour
1 egg - free range of course
Panko (Japanese breadcrumbs) 
blue cheese (I used Dolcelatte


instructions

So easy to do there isn't even a real recipe!

Just bash a chicken fillet between two sheet of cling film so it's nice and thin.  Why?  Because it will cook a lot quicker without drying out.

First of all be sure to season the flour and the crumbs with a little salt and pepper or the chicken will taste of nothing very interesting.

Fry 2 pieces of smoked back bacon per fillet/person until nice and crisp then set aside.

Now get 3 plates in a row:
 Seasoned flour on one, egg on the second and again seasoned, with salt and pepper, Panko (Japanese breadcrumbs) on the third - of course you can use ordinary breadcrumbs if you wish - but toast them lightly first so they are nice and crunchy.

Put the now thin chicken fillet first in the flour, then the egg, followed by the crumbs.

Heat a good glug of oil in a frying pan and fry each crumbed fillet for a couple of minutes each side until cooked through and golden.

Just before they are done top with sliced blue cheese (I used Dolcelatte) and put the bacon back on top - it will soon heat through.

Serve straight away with skinny chips and a side salad.
