Chicken Milanesa

How to make Chicken Milanesa.

Ingredients: 4 servings.

  • 2 boneless chicken breasts
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil canola works too
  • Lemon wedges to serve


  • To prepare the chicken, slice each of the breasts crosswise into two thin fillets. Place in a zip-lock bag and bash with a meat tenderizer or rolling pin to flatten out to about a 1/4-inch thickness.
  • Take two medium-sized kitchen bowls. In the first, beat the egg. In the second, combine the breadcrumbs with the garlic, pepper, and salt.
  • Dip each chicken fillet in the egg, then in the breadcrumb mix, and then place on a plate ready to fry.
  • To fry the chicken, place a large skillet over medium heat and add the vegetable oil. When the oil is shimmering, fry the chicken fillets for about 5 minutes on each side without crowding the pan (you might only be able to do 1 or 2 at a time depending on the size of the skillet). Place chicken on a plate that has been covered with a paper towel to drain any excess oil.
  • Serve hot, with lemon wedges on the side.
