Recipe by Eshun Mott


  • 1 1/2 lbs boneless, skinless chicken breasts

  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise

  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard

  • 2 tsp chopped garlic

  • 1 1/2 cups fresh bread crumbs

  • 3/4 cup grated Parmesan

  • 2 tbsp canola oil, plus more if necessary


  • Lay chicken breasts flat on a cutting board and use a sharp knife to cut through them horizontally to make 2 wide flat pieces of chicken.

  • Combine mayonnaise, mustard and garlic in a shallow bowl. Add chicken and toss to coat in mixture.

  • Combine bread crumbs and Parmesan in another shallow bowl. Working with one piece at a time, add chicken and press gently in crumbs to coat.

  • Heat 2 tbsp oil on a griddle or in a large skillet over medium. Working in batches if necessary, and adding extra oil as needed, add chicken in a single layer and fry for 2 min per side or until crumbs are golden and chicken is cooked through. Serve with a green salad and potatoes.
