HOW TO COOK CRISPY CHICKEN BREAST FILLET RECIPE

The question, How To Cook Crispy Chicken Breast Fillet…is one of the most common questions I get asked by new and experienced cooks alike. In the excitement of getting started cooking for your family or even just to try something new, not to mention your personal tastes, you may be tempted to try a fried chicken breast recipe that you come across in a cookbook or on the Internet.

Although these delicious dishes may be appealing, many times they are not healthy or even very good for you. It is important to realize that frying chicken (or any other food for that matter) is not a healthy solution. In fact, many times it is not even good for you short term.

HOW TO COOK CRISPY CHICKEN BREAST FILLET RECIPE

The first issue you should address when learning how to cook crispy chicken breast fillet is fat. More often than not, when people purchase chicken breasts, they are surprised to learn that it is very difficult to make them less fatty. It’s really not as simple as buying a bag of frozen chicken breasts and throwing them on the grill.

Although this method will produce the desired result, the fat content is going to be higher than desired. In fact, there may even be excessive amounts of fat.

As with all fried foods, the type of oil you use will have a significant impact on the end result. Many cookbooks and magazines recommend using a light oil such as olive oil or canola oil. However, a word to the wise: avoid these oils when cooking for the first time.

The reason is that if the fish sauce has been infused with alcohol, there is a good chance that your dish may turn out tasting like a distillery. Alcohol can also transform food from bland to gummy in a very short amount of time.

Once you’ve chosen your oil, you need to determine what kind of chicken breast fillet you want. You can choose from many different cuts, but the most common is the round steak. The reason is that it makes a nice shape for the pan, and because the meat is so thin, it may not crisp up as nicely as you would like. If you’re looking for something a bit thicker, you may want to try a filet mignon, or even skirt steak.

After you’ve selected the type of meat you want, it’s time to start preparing the rest of the ingredients. For starters, you will want to gather together the vegetables and spices that go with your chicken breast fillet. These include onions, bell pepper, celery, garlic, salt and pepper.

Depending on the size of your frying pan, you may have to use a bit more salt and pepper than usual. You also may want to consider adding some additional liquid, such as oil or water, depending on personal preference.

Now that your vegetables are ready, it’s time to get down to the business of cooking the rest of your meal. When frying chicken breasts, you want to keep in mind the fact that they cook quickly. Therefore, it’s best to plan on making several servings at once. You should pan fry all of your ingredients, including the chicken breast, in one large pan. You can add the onions and peppers to the pan as they begin to brown, then finish off with the celery and garlic.

Once the vegetables are done, you’ll want to flip them over, and coat them with the seasoning mix. Continue this process until your chicken breasts are fully cooked. Depending on how oily your stock is, you may have to add a lot of oil to allow the mixture to coat the breasts properly.

Once you’re satisfied with the result, turn the heat down a little and serve immediately. If you serve it right from the pan, it’ll be delicious, but you may find yourself needing to add a little more butter if you let it cool down a bit.
