This dish is very versatile allowing you to choose different herbs/spices to adapt to both palette,seasons or what you have in! To accommodate children you can omit the spices/herbs from the flour/breadcrumbs build your plain escaroles first then add your seasonings to the flour/breadcrumbs and build the rest.
  • 6 chicken breasts, boneless & skinless
  • 125g/4oz plain flour (ideally spelt flour)
  • 2 tablespoons Italian seasoning (see my recipe)
  • Malden sea salt and black pepper
  • 3 free range eggs, beaten
  • 6 slices bread (stale is fine)
  • Rind of 1 lemon
  • 1 handful of coriander
  1. Select 3 shallow bowls minimum width to accommodate your chicken breasts
  2. Put bread and coriander in a food processor and whizz till breadcrumbs
  3. Combine flour and seasoning in one bowl
  4. Beat eggs in second bowl
  5. Combine breadcrumbs with lemon rind in last bowl
  6. Now comes the fun part! Roll up your sleeves and prepare to get a little messy..
  7. Using your left hand dip a chicken breast in the flour mix then the beaten egg
  8. Now using your right hand roll in the breadcrumbs and place on a nonstick baking tray
  9. NB I recommend you use separate hands to prevent breaded fingers!
  10. Continue till you have breaded each chicken breast
