How to Bake delicious oven fried chicken and a bean salad
Fried chicken is delicious but it is pretty fattening and messy to prepare. With this recipe, eliminate all that yucky oil and frying and make equally delicious "fried" chicken in your oven! Serve the chicken along with a refreshing and light bean salad and you have the perfect summertime dish..and it's so easy!
You Will Need:
*Boneless/Skinless chicken breasts, trimmed and sliced into cutlets.
*1 stick of butter melted
*Bread crumbs, your choice, seasoned, or unseasoned, however I would not choose Panko because it is too coarse and may burn.
*1 can green beans
*1 can wax (yellow) beans
*1 can dark red kidney beans
*1 can garbanzo beans
*1 small onion chopped
*1/2 green onion chopped
*1/2 red onion chopped
*1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
*1/2 cup vegetable oil
*3/4 cup sugar
How To for chicken:
Dip both sides of a cutlet in melted butter and then run through the breadcrumb, making sure to coat both sides well, place on a prepared baking sheet. When all of the cutlets have been coated, place in oven set at 350 for approximately 30 minutes, or until golden brown and no longer pink in the middle.
How To for bean salad:
Drain and rinse the canned beans well in a collander. Place in a large bowl along with the chopped onion and peppers.
Mix oil, vinegar and sugar in a separate bowl and mix well with a whisk. Pour over the bean and vegetable mixture and stir gently, making sure to incorporate all the ingredients well and coat all the vegetables in the bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and place in the fridge until dinner is ready to be served. This will allow all the flavors to mingle. This salad is even better the next day! (this is different than the video, but a better way of doing it)
