  1. Heat oil in a deep-fryer or large saucepan to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Combine the bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, garlic salt, and pepper in a bowl; set aside.
  2. Place the mayonnaise and chipotle peppers into a blender and puree until smooth. Scrape the mayonnaise mixture into a plastic bag; add the chicken breasts and coat evenly with the mayonnaise. Press the chicken breasts into the bread crumb mixture and shake off any excess.
  3. Cook the chicken breasts in the hot oil until the breading is golden brown and the breasts are no longer pink on the inside, about 8 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

I'd like to try this recipe for my hubby and children.I really like to cook.Thank you

I really liked the flavor of the breading, but I think 375 is too hot for the grease. Mine turned out very dark before the inside was even cooked all the way. I'll try this again on 350, I think.
