Crunchy Garlic Chicken

Today's recipe I learned from Jamie Oliver's book, it is so delicious that just by remembering it's taste I feel like making some more! lol

The good thing about this recipe is that, if you want to make it healthier, instead of frying like I did, cook it in the oven for about 20min or until it looks golden and it will be delicious as the fried one =] Oh and by the way, in this recipe I only made 2 chicken breast fillet, but in case you want to make more just double the amount of everything, just stick to one egg, I think it is enough to make around 4 fillets or maybe 5 depending on the size of the fillets.

2 garlic gloves
1/2 Lemon zest (I only had lime at home when I took the photos, but the recipe tastes better with lemon)
6 cream crackers (or saltine crackers)
1 table spoon of butter
Salt and black pepper
2 table spoon of flour
1 egg
2 chicken breast fillet
Olive oil

Start by grinding the cream crackers. You can grind it by using a food processor, or the barbarian way like I do, that it is much more work but much more fun too. You put the cream crackers folded inside a clean towel and smash it using a meat hammer until you fill like all the crackers are grind enough. When you finish grinding the crackers, slice the garlic in small pieces and add it to the grinder crackers. Add the lemon zest, butter, parsley (really well chopped), salt and black pepper. Mix everything really well with your hands or with a food processor if you have one.

Add the flour in a plate, in a bow add the egg and beat it, in another plate add the cream cracker mixture. In a big pan in medium heat, add the olive oil to fry the chicken. Now get prepared to start the "production line".

Get the chicken breast fillet and deep it in the flour making sure it has it on all sides, then deep it in the beating egg and then finally deep it in the cream cracker mixture. Press the chicken against the cream cracker mixture, so it stick really well to it. Make sure all sides are good and then fry it on both sides until golden.

There you go! A delicious crunchy chicken breast fillet! This recipe is really good for kids too, they love it!
