  • 2 x 125 gram/ 4.5 oz Chicken Breast
  • ½ cup Hazelnut meal
  • ½ teaspoon Garlic Salt

  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 tablespoon Parmesan
  • 1 medium Egg
  • 1 tablespoon Milk
  • 2 or 3 tablespoons Canola oil


  • Place the chicken pieces between 2 sheets of cling film and flatten out with the heel of your palm until the pieces are thin enough to your liking.
  • On a large dinner plate place the hazelnut meal, garlic salt, parsley, oregano and parmesan.
  • In a bowl, make the egg wash by whisking the egg and milk together with a fork.
  • Dip the chicken into the egg wash
  • Press firmly into the crumb mix both sides until coated
  • Heat a pan to medium heat and spray with canola oil spray
