"My Jewish great grandmother's recipe for chicken. Chicken is battered and breaded with a matzo coating that is seasoned with Hungarian paprika for a winning flavor." — CLIOHEARTS

skinless, boneless chicken breast halves - pounded to 1/2 inch thickness
Hungarian paprika, divided
prepared yellow mustard
salt and pepper to taste
oil for frying
I've had this many many times, and it's great every time. The key is to not try to cook the chicken too fast, or it will turn brown on the outside and not done inside.
Not a favorite but I might repeat - it's just that there's so many things to try that I often don't repeat even the ones I really liked.
When I fry things like this, I ALWAYS use half olive oil and half butter. One brings down the temperature of the other which gives you more control... and great taste.
I wish more folks would submit recipes from their Grandmothers...I find those recipes to be the best...the older..the better. I love trying old tried and true recipes from different countries. This was good. To the cook who tried to use the Panko, Panko is a very delicate bread crumb, much different than Matzo in consistency. Whenever you use Panko, always use tempura batter with it. Please do not give negative comments if you don't follow the recipe the way the original cook intended it. Thanks for the recipe, my 4 year old loved it.
Great recipe. The trick to not having the breading fall off is to double dip -- egg, then matzo meal, then egg, then matzo meal again. If you fry at the correct temp, this absorbs very little grease.
I add lemon juice to the egg mixture. Also, rather than frying, I spray the cutlets with a canola oil spray and bake at 425 until done (I put on a rack so the underside gets crispy, too). It's not quite the same as frying, but it's a healthier alternative.
I did not care for this recipe.
My 15 year old daughter chose this recipe for her night to cook and I was a little leary of her trying it, but she did awesome and the chicken was really good. I'd like to put a bit more spice into it next time we cook it, or maybe marinade the chicken first..just to add some flavor. The only down side I see to this recipe ..is that it's deep fried food. It was a definate confidence booster for my daughter.
