To embark upon this gastronomical journey, you will require several key ingredients that are essential to the success of this dish.

- 100 grams of wheat flour
- 3 eggs

How to make chicken chops
Step 1. If your chicken fillet is frozen, then ensure it is defrosted beforehand. Wash the eggs thoroughly and dry them to eliminate any excess moisture. Additionally, you will require a flat plate with wheat flour for the breading process.
Step 2. After securing the ingredients, it is time to commence the culinary process. Start by washing and drying the chicken fillet, then cut it lengthwise into three slices, ensuring that each slice remains whole and thin. Subsequently, lightly beat each slice with a hammer to tenderize the meat, then add salt and pepper to flavor the chicken to your liking.
Step 3. Then involves separating the egg whites from the yolks, and beating the yolks with a tablespoon of cold water,
while separately beating the whites with a mixer and a pinch of salt until they transform into a stable, airy foam.
Step 4. Next, dip each piece of chicken into the beaten yolks, then coat both sides of the fillet with wheat flour, ensuring it is entirely covered. Finally, dip the chicken into the beaten egg whites, ensuring that the meat is wholly enveloped in the egg whites.
Step 5. In a frying pan, heat up two tablespoons of vegetable oil, and put the chicken chops into it. Fry the chicken over medium heat for approximately 3-4 minutes on each side until it transforms into a lovely golden brown color.
The resulting chicken chops should be exquisite, possessing an airy crust and succulent meat that will leave you feeling satiated and fulfilled. If desired, you can sprinkle the chicken with a chicken spice mix to further enhance its flavor. Additionally, while frying, the whipped protein does not spread but instead transforms into a golden, fluffy shell that entirely coats the chicken meat, preventing the evaporation of excess moisture from the chops.
Chicken chops are best eaten immediately while they are hot, but they do not lose their properties even after warming up the next day. You can serve chicken chops with various side dishes, including potatoes (mashed or sliced), boiled rice or buckwheat, pasta, or a fresh vegetable salad. Finally, note that you can use the same recipe to cook turkey or pork chops, but ensure you beat the pork thinner on both sides to ensure it fries quickly and does not remain raw inside. With this recipe, you can savor the tantalizing taste of chicken chops in the comfort of your own home, and become a culinary maestro that will leave your guests impressed and desirous of more.
