Serves: 8

Ingredients

  • 1⁄4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1 pound chicken breasts, split in half lengthwise and pounded to 1/8”-thick pieces
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1⁄2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • 1 1⁄2 cups Private Selection™ Traditional Panko Breadcrumbs
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil, divided
  • 2 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 8 slider buns, toasted if desired

Directions

  • In a small bowl, combine mayonnaise, mustard and lemon juice.
  • Cut each pounded chicken piece in half, forming 8 pieces. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Set up a breading station by placing flour in one shallow bowl, eggs in a second shallow bowl, and breadcrumbs in a third.
  • Dip chicken pieces first in flour, then in egg and finally in breadcrumbs, shaking off excess between each step.
  • Add 1 tablespoon oil and 1 tablespoon butter to a large skillet over medium heat. Add half the chicken pieces and cook 6-10 minutes, flipping once, until golden brown and internal temperature reaches 165°F.
  • Transfer cooked chicken to a paper-towel-lined plate. Repeat the previous step with remaining chicken.
  • Serve chicken on slider buns with mustard sauce.
  • Refrigerate leftovers.
