    About this recipe: A deliciously crunchy fried chicken dish. Chicken is dredged in a paprika-spiced matzo crumb, before being pan-fried to perfection.

    Ingredients
    Serves: 4 

    • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast fillets, pounded to 1.25cm thickness
    • 3 eggs
    • 2 tablespoons paprika, divided
    • 2 tablespoons yellow mustard
    • salt and pepper to taste
    • 265g matzo meal
    • 250ml oil for frying

    Method
    Prep:20min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:40min 

    1. In a bowl, beat together the eggs, 1 tablespoon of paprika, mustard, salt and pepper. In a separate dish, stir together the remaining paprika and matzo meal.
    2. Heat the oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Dip each chicken breast into the eggs, then into the matzo meal until completely coated. Make sure you can see no chicken through the breading or it may fall off.
    3. Fry in hot oil for about 5 minutes per side or until the chicken is firm and the juices run clear. If it starts to brown too fast, reduce the heat slightly.

    I wish more folks would submit recipes from their Grandmothers...I find those recipes to be the best...the older..the better. I love trying old tried and true recipes from different countries. This was good. To the cook who tried to use the Panko, Panko is a very delicate bread crumb, much different than Matzo in consistency. Whenever you use Panko, always use tempura batter with it. Please do not give negative comments if you don't follow the recipe the way the original cook intended it. Thanks for the recipe, my 4 year old loved it.  -  10 Jan 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    I've had this many many times, and it's great every time. The key is to not try to cook the chicken too fast, or it will turn brown on the outside and not done inside.  -  18 Jun 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
