  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • Cooking oil, for frying
  • Lemon wedges and fresh herbs for garnish (optional)


  • Meat mallet
  • Plastic wrap
  • Shallow bowls or plates
  • Skillet or frying pan
  • Tongs


Preparing the Chicken:

  1. Prep the Chicken: Lay the chicken breasts between sheets of plastic wrap and gently pound them with a meat mallet to an even thickness of about 1/2 inch.
  2. Season the Chicken: In a small bowl, mix the paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper. Season both sides of the chicken breasts with this spice blend.

Breading the Chicken:

  1. Set Up Breading Station: In three separate shallow bowls or plates, set up your breading station. Fill one with flour, another with a mixture of beaten eggs and milk, and the third with a combination of breadcrumbs and grated Parmesan cheese.
  2. Coat with Flour: Dredge each chicken breast in the flour, ensuring an even coating. Shake off any excess.
  3. Dip in Egg Mixture: Dip the floured chicken into the egg and milk mixture, allowing any excess to drip off.
  4. Coat with Breadcrumbs: Finally, coat the chicken in the breadcrumb and Parmesan mixture, pressing the breadcrumbs onto the chicken to adhere well.

Pan-Frying the Chicken:

  1. Heat Oil: In a large skillet or frying pan, heat about 1/4 inch of cooking oil over medium-high heat until it shimmers.
  2. Fry the Chicken: Carefully add the breaded chicken breasts to the hot oil. Cook for about 4-5 minutes on each side, or until they’re golden brown and cooked through. The internal temperature should reach 165°F (74°C).
  3. Drain and Rest: Remove the chicken from the skillet and place them on a plate lined with paper towels to drain any excess oil. Let them rest for a few minutes.


  1. Garnish and Serve: Optionally, garnish the pan-fried chicken breast with lemon wedges and fresh herbs like parsley or thyme. Serve immediately.


  • For extra flavor, you can add a pinch of cayenne pepper to the breadcrumb mixture for a subtle kick.
  • Use a meat thermometer to ensure the chicken is cooked to perfection without overcooking.
  • If you’d like a lighter version, you can pan-fry the chicken in olive oil or a mix of butter and oil.
