Crispy Lemon-Thyme Chicken

12 months + up

Makes approx. 2 adult and 2 kid servings

  1. 2 egg whites

  2. 1 cup whole-wheat panko bread crumbs

  3. 1/2 tablespoon finely chopped thyme leaves

  4. Zest of 1 lemon, about 1 tablespoon

  5. 1/4 teaspoon salt

  6. 1/8 teaspoon pepper

  7. 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, preferably cutlets (if you don’t have cutlets, pound chicken thin)

  8. 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

Place egg whites in a small bowl.  Mix together the panko, thyme, lemon zest, salt and pepper in a separate shallow dish.  Dip the chicken into the egg whites, coating well; let excess drip off.  Then press the chicken into the panko mixture; thoroughly coat both sides.

In a large sauté pan, heat 2 tablespoons olive oil over medium heat. Cook the chicken until browned and cooked through, flipping once, about 3-4 minutes per side.  Add more oil if necessary to finish cooking.
