How to: Bread Chicken Pieces
- Cut your chicken into equal sized pieces.
- This will help your chicken cook evenly.
- If your chicken is a little wet, pat it dry with a paper towel. This will help the breading stick better.
- Place chicken into a plastic storage bag.
- Cuffing your storage bag around a bowl will make it easier to place the chicken inside without the bag falling over!
- Add a beaten egg. Be sure to seal up your plastic storage bag tightly to prevent spilling.
- Give the bag a good shake! Make sure all of the chicken pieces are completely covered in egg.
- Pour your bread crumbs into a second bag to prepare for breading.
- We don't add the bread crumbs directly to the egg and chicken mixture because we want to avoid the bread crumbs clumping together.
- Seel your bag tight and give it a good shake!
- Make sure to coat all of the pieces of chicken evenly.
- Press slightly on the chicken to make sure the bread crumbs are sticking.
- Remove your chicken from the bag for cooking!
- This method of breading works well for both frying and baking!
