DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350F.
  • Pound the chicken breasts to 1/4-inch thickness between 2 sheets of plastic wrap, using meat pounder or rolling pin; set aside.
  • Combine flour and pepper in a shallow dish.
  • Pour buttermilk into a second dish.
  • Spread crushed crackers on a plate.
  • Dredge chicken breasts, one at a time, in seasoned flour.
  • Dip into buttermilk, then into crushed crackers to coat thoroughly, pressing with fingertips to adhere.
  • Heat oil in a 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat.
  • Add chicken; cook 2 to 3 minutes on each side until golden brown and cooked through.
  • Remove to oven safe platter or cookie sheet (I use a baking stone); place in oven to keep warm.
