Breaded Chicken with Mushroom Sauce
Sun came out today ! And it is pretty hot right now after the cold and rainy days that were warmed by soups and baking. Perfect time for roasting, grilling and frying with this kind of weather. So instead of cooking a nourishing Chicken Tinola, I made this BREADED CHICKEN FILLET and poured with easy and tasty MUSHROOM SAUCE.
Chicken Fillet is a chicken breast piece with no bone or rib in it. Just plainly a chicken meat. Chicken fillet is lean and is more faster to cook. It is very easy to fillet a chicken meat from its breast. Just cut or slice the breast from the chicken. Then cut the fleshy meat part of the breast. And you may slice the chicken fillet according to your desired sizes. Just make sure to slice them in even or uniformed sizes. You may also cut your chicken fillets into thin strips so it will be cooked thoroughly and faster. Using a non-stick pan or skillet is better in frying a chicken fillet as to reduce the amount of oil or fat to be used. I also suggest you fry your chicken fillet with its skin on for a more flavorful fillet, then you can just remove the skin later if you are not into eating chicken skin. Lastly, leave about a half inch space between your chicken fillets while frying to cook them evenly and to have a perfect brown chicken fillets.
