Description

A spin-off of a delicious chicken entree from my favorite Mexican restaurant!

Ingredients

  • 2 whole Chicken Breasts, Boneless And Skinless
  • 1 whole Egg White, Beaten
  • ½ cups Panko Crumbs
  • ½ cups Crushed Tortilla Chips
  • 2 Tablespoons Oil, Or More As Needed
  • 1 whole Avocado
  • ¾ cups Salsa Verde, Divided
  • 1 bunch Cilantro
  • ¼ cups Mild White Cheese, Sliced Or Shredded
  • ¼ cups Fresh Pico De Gallo

Preparation

Coat the chicken with the egg white. Combine the panko and crushed chips. Dip/press chicken into the panko mixture until well-coated. Fry the chicken in 1–2 tablespoons oil over medium-high heat, about 2–3 minutes on each side.

When the outside is nice and golden brown, transfer to the oven and bake for 15–25 minutes at 400ºF (depending on the size and temperature of your chicken breasts).

Combine avocado, 1/2 cup salsa verde, cilantro, and oil (if needed) in a food processor to make a cilantro sauce.

Add the cheese; return to the oven for a few minutes until melted.

Spoon half of the remaining salsa verde on each plate. Place chicken on the salsa verde, and sprinkle cilantro sauce and pico de gallo over the top! ¡Que bueno!

I made this last night and it was delicious! of course, i’m a spice fiend so I added some cumin and chilli powder to the chicken with some salt and regular pepper before coating it with the egg.

to the salsa verde I added a habanero pepper (I like hot!) and about 4 cloves of garlic. Came out delicious!

Made this tonight and it was really delicious! I didn’t have salsa verde so just mashed up avocado, cilantro, and a little lime juice for the topping. I’ll try it next time as written but it was delicious even without – loved the ‘breading’ and a great use for the end of a bag of tortilla chips!
