Home-made Chicken Escalopes

So I thought I would try and out up a new recipe that I enjoy making for my family on a weekly basis. I’ll be linking up too so I’ll look out for any of yours too!

This week:


3 chicken breasts

2 slices of bread

2 eggs



Grab a rolling pin and cover each breast with some cling film and gently bash each piece till flat.


Dip each one in the flour, egg then breadcrumbs.


Place on a tray and bake in the oven at 190c for about 20 mins (check in the middle to make sure cooked as will depend how big your breasts are! Ooooeeeerrr!)

Serve with veg, rice/mash/chips etc.

Easy peasy and you have peace of mind that it’s nice chicken rather than the reformed stuff you get in shop bought ones.

My eldest loves making these with me, especially the bashing and dipping parts ūüôā

I need help now as I have some homegrown chilies I need to use – anyone got any suggestions??
