Lee’s Favourite ‘Fried Chicken’

Better for you than real fried chicken but not so healthy that it tastes like cardboard…

1lb. boneless skinless chicken breast (kosher or not)(I slice them in half lengthwise so they’re thin)

1 cup matzo meal

1/4 cup dijon mustard

1tsp kosher salt

1tsp black pepper

1tsp Hungarian hot paprika

4tbsp olive oil (or enough to cover the bottom of the pan)


Heat oil in pan over medium heat.  Thoroughly rub down your chicken with the dijon mustard.  In a dish, mix together matzo meal, salt, pepper, and paprika.  Once the oil is nice and hot (you could make a mini matzo ball to test it…just don’t use your fingers!), dredge the mustard-coated chicken through your matzo meal mixture and add to pan.  Make sure there is enough room between each piece (you may have to do batches).  The edges will turn golden brown and you will want to flip the pieces very gently after about five minutes on each side (if they’re thin-sliced…longer if not).  You can drain on paper towels to be extra-healthy, but these really don’t come out that greasy.
