This week – CRISPY GOLDEN CHICKEN (p. 74)
So clearly, I have a type… it’s called chicken! I chose to play it safe this week and stayed in the poultry chapter. This one looked appetizing since it combines bacon, avocado and some hot sauce!
- Boneless, skinless chicken breast
- Plain yogurt
- Sourdough breadcrumbs
- Hot sauce
Difficulty level –
This was another simple recipe but I still managed to make some mistakes… The instructions required the chicken to be flattened but my rolling pin is still packed away (home building life!), so I thought pressing really hard with the bottom of a pan would do the trick. It didn’t work and the chicken took a lot longer to cook (because it was so thick) – the exterior ended up being slightly more burnt than crisp but somehow it wasn’t dry!
Things I Googled While Making this Recipe –
- Difference between regular and sourdough breadcrumbs? I couldn’t find a difference…
Alterations to Recipe –
I had regular breadcrumbs at home and just used those.
DELICIOUS! All of the ingredients used were regular staples in our home but I had never mixed them together before. Mixing the bacon crumbs and avocado paste gave it a fresh and creamy texture. The hot chill sauce was the perfect topping!
Would I make it again? Yes but only once I get my rolling pin back!
