Ingredients

1 1/2 pounds skinless, boneless chicken breasts (3 to 4)

1 cup flour

1 teaspoon kosher salt

1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

2 extra-large eggs

1 cup seasoned bread crumbs

1/2 cup grated Parmesan

Unsalted butter

Good olive oil

Bamboo skewers (6 to 10 inches long) or ice-cream sticks

Directions

  1. Lay the chicken breasts on a cutting board and slice each diagonally into 4 or 5 large strips.
  2. Combine the flour, salt, and pepper on a dinner plate. Beat the eggs with 1 tablespoon of water on a second plate. Combine the breadcrumbs and Parmesan on a third plate. Dredge the chicken breasts on both sides in the flour mixture, then dip both sides into the egg mixture and roll in the bread-crumb mixture, pressing lightly to coat.
  3. Heat 1 tablespoon of butter and 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a large saute pan and cook the chicken strips on medium-low heat for about 3 minutes on each side, until just cooked through. Don't crowd the pan. Add more butter and oil and cook the rest of the chicken breasts. Serve each strip on a skewer or stick.
  4. You can keep the chicken breasts warm for about 15 minutes on a sheet pan in a preheated 200 degree F oven.
