Crispy Chicken with Apple Salad

Because we need a break from cookies?

Ingredients

1
green apple, cut into a dice
1
red apple, cut into a dice
1/4
cup diced red onion
2
tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1
tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1
tablespoon honey
1/2
cup fresh parsley leaves
1
pinch salt and pepper to taste
2
-3 cups vegetable oil, for frying
2
chicken breasts, sliced into strips
2
eggs, lightly beaten
1
cup Progresso™ panko bread crumbs
Spinach for serving, if desired

Directions

  • 1 In a large bowl, combine the apples, onions, 2 tablespoons olive oil, lemon juice, honey and parsley leaves. Season with a small pinch of salt and toss to combine.
  • 2 Heat the oil in a deep pot until hot.
  • 3 Season the chicken with salt and pepper. Dip the chicken in the egg mixture, then toss it in the panko breadcrumbs. Lower chicken into the oil and fry until golden brown on all sides. Place on paper towels to drain excess oil. Continue until all chicken is fried. (TIP: You may need to keep the oil at a medium temperature, so not to burn the outside, while cooking the chicken.)
  • 4 Serve chicken on a bed of spinach (if desired) and top with apple salsa.

Step By Step  

The apples are red and green, so this Crispy Chicken with Apple Salad is festive! Right? …Right?!

As prepared by Bev Cooks,

Because we need a break from cookies?

Look. I know the cookies are delicious. I know the pies are scrumptious. I know the cakes are glorious. I know the fudge is miraculous. 

But Santa wanted me to let you know that it's HIS job to be huge and round and jolly and barely able to fit down the chimneys in a couple of nights – not ours. 

But hark it up! I still fried the chicken, so it's still jovial and filled with holiday glee. But we serve it over spinach greens and under a light-and-bright and colorful apple and onion salsa. Santa approves of this message. 

Your kiddies? Maybe not so much.

Okay! Start by making your salsa. Dice up a red and green apple. And some red onion. Toss it with some olive oil, lemon juice, honey and parsley! I want this salsa for the rest of my life.

Slice up a couple of chicken breasts into little strips. Or you could buy chicken tenders and save some time! SCIENCE.

Dip the chicken strips into an egg wash and then roll them around in some Progresso panko breadcrumbs.

Fried! I didn't show the actual frying because I'm a sissy when it comes to oil and I was scared.

Then you just arrange the chicken on top of some spinach and top it with the apple salsa and done. done. done.

So healthy! (minus the frying) 

It's seriously good. Crispy, crunchy, Christmasy. Do it. 

 

Bev even dipped her chicken in some bbq sauce because she be cray. For more musings, visit her blog Bev Cooks and her Tablespoon profile.
