If you like fried chicken this is a great recipe, but I do not like fried foods so I have given a baked alternative to this recipe.
4 large chicken breasts or one whole chicken boned with skin removed
salt to taste
3 Tbls each green onion, green bell pepper, parsley
flour for coating
1 beaten egg
1 Tbls of water
lemon wedge, opt
Cut chicken breasts in half taking care not to tear the meat. If you are using the whole chicken take care when boning legs & thighs. Place chicken pieces between 2 pieces of clear plastic wrap. Working from the center, pound with a wooden mallet to form cutlets about ¼-inch thick. Peel off wrap. Sprinkle with salt. In each chicken piece place and equal amount of chopped bell pepper, green onion, parsley and 1 tbls butter. Place on chicken piece and roll as for a jelly roll, tucking in the sides. Press to seal. You can fasten with wooden toothpicks. Coat each piece with flour. Combine egg & water. Mix well. Dip rolls into mixture, then roll in fine breadcrumbs. Chill at least an hour. Next you can either deep fry them for about 5-10 minutes in hot oil or you can bake them for about 30-45 minutes at 375º until outside is golden brown. Serve with a lemon wedge to dress with lemon juice.
