How to Make Cheesy Chicken Chops
Step 1: Prepping the Chicken
Begin by slicing the chicken fillet lengthwise into several pieces. Typically, you’ll end up with around 6 pieces.
Step 2: Mixing the Spices
In a mixing bowl, combine the salt, black pepper, curry, and a pinch of red ground pepper. This spice mixture will infuse the chicken with a burst of flavors.
Step 3: Tenderizing the Chicken
Using a meat mallet or a rolling pin, gently pound each chicken slice. You can place the chicken between plastic wrap or a clear plastic bag to prevent splattering.
Step 4: Marinating
Coat the chicken slices with the spice mixture you prepared earlier, ensuring they are thoroughly coated. This step allows the flavors to penetrate the chicken.
Step 5: Cheese Blend
Grate the cheese of your choice using a coarse grater. A solid homemade cheese works wonderfully. In a separate bowl, beat three eggs and then mix them with the grated cheese until well combined.
Step 6: Breading and Frying
Heat a skillet with olive oil and a pinch of dried rosemary. Dip each marinated chicken slice into the egg and cheese mixture, ensuring it’s coated evenly. Then, place the coated slice in the hot skillet and fry on both sides for about 3-5 minutes or until golden brown and crispy. If you prefer fried chops, you can stop at this stage. However, I prefer to stew them.
Step 6. Strewing in Sour Cream
Place the chops in a pot. Pour water over them. Add two tablespoons of heavy sour cream or store-bought 20% sour cream, 100 g. Add half a teaspoon of rosemary. Stew for 20 minutes.
Food and Drink Paring
This dish is served in a keto style with a vegetable salad or with any side dish like mashed potatoes or pasta if you’re not concerned about carbohydrates. I would higky recoomend tomato juice with this chops.
Can I Substitute the Chicken with Another Protein?
Absolutely! While the original recipe calls for chicken fillets, you can experiment with pork or even tofu for a vegetarian twist.
Can I Adjust the Spices to My Preference?
Absolutely! Cooking is all about personalization. Feel free to tweak the spice blend according to your taste.
How Do I Store Leftovers?
If you happen to have leftovers, store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator. When reheating, consider using an oven or toaster oven to maintain the crispy texture.
Elevate Your Dining Experience
For a complete dining experience, pair your cheesy chicken chops with a refreshing side salad. The contrast of the savory cutlets and the crispiness of the salad greens is a match made in culinary heaven. If you’re feeling indulgent, a creamy garlic sauce can elevate the flavors even further.
