Chicken à la Lucille
This recipe is supposed to belong to, surprise surprise, Negan! An ode to his beloved, nail-filled baseball bat that he used to kill countless survivors. So it won’t be a surprise that the first instruction in this recipe is to beat your chicken breasts until they’re flat.
I asked my husband to help out with this task, but he got tired of it before they were flat enough so ours were a little thick in certain places. In hindsight, I should have purchased smaller chicken breasts to begin with.
Once flattened, the breasts are dipped in seasoned flour, then egg, and finally bread crumbs mixed with Parmesan and parsley before being tossed on the stove to cook.
Since our breasts were not as flat as they should have been, it did take us a lot longer than the recipe stated to cook the chicken all the way through.
This was very tasty, but a little bland. A squeeze of lemon would have been a nice addition.
The tricky part here is hammering the chicken so it’s thin enough, and then making sure you don’t over or under cook your chicken.
Cost: Cheap / Average
You’ll need chicken breasts, flour, salt, pepper, eggs, panko breadcrumbs, Parmesan, parsley, olive oil and butter.
Purchase smaller chicken breasts for this, or even consider using chicken breast tenderloins instead since they’re already much thinner.
