    Sharlene~W's Note:

    This chicken is nice and crunchy with just a tiny little bite from the cayenne. Enjoy it alone, topped with honey-mustard dressing or atop a salad (See Salad Greens With Honey-Mustard Dressing). Cooking time includes the 20-30 minutes chicken dries between breading and cooking. This recipe is from Cuisine at Home magazine.

    Bread Crumb Mixture

    Saute in

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Prepare chicken breasts into cutlets, cutting into thirds and gently pounding to an even thickness of 1/2 inch (easier and cleaner if done between two layers of plastic wrap).
    2. 2
      Blend egg whites, cornstarch, and lemon juice with a fork in a wide, shallow dish; set aside.
    3. 3
      Combine bread crumbs, parsley, salt, pepper, zest, pecans, and seasonings in another wide shallow dish.
    4. 4
      Crust chicken breasts by dipping both sides of prepared chicken into egg white mixture. Then applying crumbs to both sides, patting them on as much as possible. Transfer to a cookie rack to air-dry on both sides for 20-30 minutes. (This will set crust so it will stay on chicken and crisp up nicely).
    5. 5
      Sauté chicken in oil in a large, nonstick, ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat for about 3 minutes, or until golden brown and crisp on bottom. Turn carefully with a spatula and transfer the skillet to the oven to finish cooking. This should take about 8 more minutes. Don't overcook, you don't want it to dry out.

      This is a FABULOUS recipe, however, like the other reviewers, triple up on the spices. The chicken is VERY tender and has a nice crunch to it because of the panko bread crumbs and pecans. After frying in olive oil, I baked them in a 375 degree oven for 15 minutes. (just to make sure the chicken was cooked thoroughly!)

      I made this and it came out good but it lacked something in the final outcome. I think that it could of used some garlic. But I still got rave reviews for it.

      Loved the flavor--cooked it in the oven instead of in a pan, using 1 tbsp oil in pan, one in "liguid dip" and one spritzed over the top after they were rolled in the crust. Due to lack of ingredients I used lime juice instead of lemon, omitted salt, and used a whole egg rather than two whites. Very good! It baked at 350 about 23 minutes to perfection.
