Chicken Fillet in Batter

Chicken fillet in batter

The easiest and most delicious way to cook chicken fillet is to fry it in batter. Even chicken breast turns out juicy and tender, although this meat is usually dry. But batter is a protective crust that keeps all the juices inside each piece of meat. It is also very light and does not absorb excess fat from the pan. Chicken in batter is convenient to take with you to work, on a trip or to school. It's even delicious when it's cooled down.

Prepare the chicken. Cut the chicken fillet into equal pieces. Do not make them too thick. Otherwise, the batter will brown on top while the chicken inside won't have time to fully cook. It is better if the thickness is no more than 1-1.5 cm. Note that I am preparing the chicken in batter according to the classic recipe. However, you can also coat the chicken in spices beforehand. It can be dried garlic, chicken seasoning, or any other favorite herbs and spices. In the batter, they will release their aroma, and the chicken meat will be very flavorful. It is not recommended to add spices directly to the batter. When frying in a pan, they can become overly toasted and give a bitter taste to the batter.

Place the chicken pieces in the batter and coat them on both sides. The batter should completely cover each piece of chicken. But try not to have too much of it on the fillet. Otherwise, the coating on the cooked chicken will be thick.

Pour vegetable oil into a skillet and heat it over low heat. The oil should be very well heated before we start frying the chicken fillet in the batter. Place the chicken pieces in the skillet and fry them over low heat until they have a golden crust.

Turn the chicken pieces over and fry them on low heat until golden brown. Remember about the heat. Do not make it too high. It is better if it is minimal. This will allow the chicken to cook well both on the outside and inside. With high heat, the batter will quickly brown, while the meat will remain raw. On average, it takes about 3-4 minutes to cook one side of the chicken fillet. But the exact time will depend on the size of your pieces and the heat conductivity of your skillet. It is not recommended to fry all the pieces at once. It's better to do it one by one, so that each piece has enough space on the skillet for even cooking.
