The unsweetened cocoa lends a darker flavor and color to every day fried chicken.
INGREDIENTS (for 5 servings):
- 2 pounds skinless, boneless chicken breast halves, cut into bite size pieces
- 2 cups all-purpose flour for coating
- 1 teaspoon cocoa powder
- 1 egg, beaten
- 2 cups seasoned dry bread crumbs
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
Mix flour and cocoa powder in a shallow dish or plate. One by one, coat chicken pieces in flour mixture, then dip in beaten egg, then in seasoned bread crumbs.
In a large skillet heat oil over medium high heat. Shallow fry coated chicken pieces in oil until cooked through and juices run clear (approximately 5 minutes). Enjoy!
