Serves 4-5

  • 1 package of Thin Sliced Chicken Breast  (1½lbs. - 7 chicken fillets)
  • 2/3 cup of flour
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1¼ cups Saltine Cracker Crumbs (replace with Panko Breadcrumbs, but the crackers will add more flavor)
  • 2 tablespoons Smoked Paprika
  • 1 tablespoons granulated Garlic
  • ½ tablespoons of ground Black Pepper
  • 2 teaspoons crushed Red Pepper (more if you like it really spicy)
  • 1 teaspoon Curry Powder
  • Salt to taste
  • Vegetable oil for frying or cooking spray for baking

If you are baking the fillets:  Preheat the oven to 400ºF

In a bowl, combine 2 tablespoons of smoked paprika, 1 tablespoon of garlic powder, ½ tablespoon of black pepper, 2 teaspoons of crushed red pepper (more if you like it really spicy), 1 teaspoons of curry powder and salt to taste, mix well and set aside for minute. ( I added ½ tablespoon of salt)

Season the Flour with 1 tablespoon of the Paprika mixture, mix well and set aside.
Season the Cracker Crumbs with 2 tablespoons of the Paprika mixture, mix well, taste the flavor and set aside for a minute.

Place the eggs in a bowl, season them with ½ tablespoon of the Paprika mixture, beat well and set aside for a minute.

Coat the chicken with the flour Mixture. Make sure every chicken fillet is well coated with the flour and then dip the fillets in the egg mixture. Again, make  sure every fillet is well soaked with the egg mixture, shake the fillets, to get rid of the excess egg, and finally coat them with the cracker mixture.

Using a fork or your clean hands, press down the cracker crumbs onto the chicken fillets,to get a nice thick crust on them.  Keep on repeating this steps until you are done. (First coat the fillets with the flour, then dip them in the egg, then cover them with the cracker crumbs.)

You can either Bake this fillets or Pan Fry them, so heat up the oil to fry them or spray them with cooking spray and bake them at 400ºF for about 8-10 minutes or until cooked.

That's it,, enjoy!
