Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Place Parmesan cheese into a shallow bowl.

    Advertisement
  • Beat eggs and water together in a bowl.

  • Dip chicken strips into the egg mixture.

  • Press chicken into Parmesan cheese. Gently toss between your hands so any cheese crumbs that haven't stuck can fall away. Place the coated chicken onto a plate while coating the rest; do not stack.

  • Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Pan-fry chicken strips in batches until no longer pink in the center and crust is golden brown, about 4 minutes on each side.

I followed the directions exactly and the cheese stuck to the pan and the spatula but not the chicken. I was left with tasteless chicken cooked in oil. Read More

Made it for dinner tonight for my fussy kids --- everyone LOVED them. A little more involved than most of our meals but definitely worth it. I used 2 lbs of chicken and had plenty of leftovers. Thank you! Read More

I made these with egg beaters and baked them with a little olive oil. They were great and my son's friend said "best chicken ever". Read More

A quick simple recipe but I found it a little bland. The second time I made these I added some garlic/oregano/onion and served with marinara sauce. Read More

This is absolutely delicious! I substituted vegetable oil with olive oil even messed up and mixed the eggs in the same bowl with the cheese and it still turned out great! Definitely going to make this again soon. Read More

Easy & quick! Made it like the recipe states but it would be very easy to add some seasonings to the Parmesan cheese before coating. Next time I will try that for a different spin. I used 3 chicken breasts & had quite a bit of the Parmesan cheese left over - I think you should start with just 1 cup of cheese & add more to the bowl if needed. Also had egg left so beat in another egg & stirred in the Parmesan then cooked it like an omelet. It came out looking like a fluffy golden pancake. Read More
