Ingredients

  • 2 lemons
  • 1 1/2 cups (110g) panko breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 cup (150g) whole-egg mayonnaise
  • 2 Coles Australian RSPCA Approved Chicken Breast Fillets, halved horizontally
  • 1 tbs drained baby capers
  • Mixed salad leaves, to serve

Method

STEP 1

Finely grate half the rind of 1 lemon. Zest the other half of the lemon. Combine the lemon rind and breadcrumbs in a large bowl. Cut the remaining lemon into wedges.

STEP 2

Spread mayonnaise over both sides of chicken, then dip in breadcrumb mixture, pressing to coat. Place on a baking tray.

STEP 3

Heat a greased large frying pan over medium-high heat. Cook chicken for 3-4 mins each side or until golden and cooked through. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towel.

STEP 4

Divide the chicken among serving plates and sprinkle with lemon zest and capers. Season. Serve with salad leaves and lemon wedges.

 

Magic with mayo

Whole-egg mayonnaise is a mess-free way to crumb chicken – it helps the crumbs stick without having to dip in egg.
