Want to eat it every day, probably best not to!

It's so easy to do, just make your chicken fillets thinner by bashing them between two sheets of cling film or greaseproof paper so it's nice and thin.

See, how to crumb chicken in my Chicken Parmesan recipe. Panko crumbs are so nice and crispy - you can buy Panko crumbs (Japanese breadcrumbs) from any good supermarket.

Why make the chicken thinner?

Because it will cook a lot quicker without drying out.

If you like the look of this recipe then you will almost certainly like my Crispy Parmesan Crumbed Chicken.

Prep time: 10 MinCook time: 8 MinTotal time: 18 Min


  • 2 x chicken breast fillets
  • 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil for frying
  • 4 rashers of smoked back bacon - cooked until crispy
  • a big handful of plain (all purpose) flour
  • 1 large egg - lightly beaten
  • a big handful of panko (Japanese breadcrumbs)
  • 2 thick slices of blue cheese - I used Dolcelatte as it melts easily


Prepare the chicken
  1. Put the chicken fillets between two sheets of cling film and bash gently until it's nice and thin.
  2. First of all, be sure to season the flour and the crumbs with a little salt and pepper or the chicken will taste bland.
  3. Fry the smoked back bacon until it's nice and crisp then set aside.
To crumb the chicken
  1. Get plates or bowls in a row.
  2. Put the seasoned flour onto plate 1
  3. Tip the lightly beaten egg onto plate 2
  4. Add the panko onto plate 3 and season it with salt and pepper.
  5. Put the prepared chicken fillet first in the flour, then the egg, followed by the crumbs.
To cook
  1. Heat a tablespoon of oil in a frying pan and fry each crumbed fillet for a couple of minutes on each side until cooked through and golden.
  2. Just before they are done, top them with sliced blue cheese. Put the cooked bacon on the side of the chicken to heat through. Once hot add the bacon to the chicken and cheese.
  3. Serve straight away with skinny chips and a side salad.

  1. Ah! Completely delicious.

    I love bacon and chicken together, and with that sauce it looks a total joy.

    Love your blog, it's very easy to jump from one post to another!

  2. What a combination! Filing this one under 'r' for rude food.
