    • 2 chicken breasts, skinned
    • 2tbsp plain flour
    • Salt and ground black pepper
    • 1 medium egg
    • 50g white breadcrumbs
    • Zested rind of 1 lemon
    • 1-2 tbsp chopped fresh parsley
    • 30g butter
    • 1tbsp sunflower oil


    • Put each chicken breast between 2 sheets of cling film and, using a rolling pin or mallet, beat the chicken breasts out to an even thickness, until each one is about twice the original size.

    • Tip the flour on to a plate and add seasoning. Leave to one side. Beat the egg in a shallow dish. On another plate,mix together the breadcrumbs, lemon zest and parsley.

    • Dip a chicken breast in the flour and tap off any excess, then dip it in the egg to coat completely; finally, dip in breadcrumb mixture and set aside. Repeat with the rest of the chicken.

    • Heat the butter and oil in a frying pan. Cook the breasts over a medium heat for 3-4 mins on each side. Drain on kitchen paper before serving.
