Step 1

Preheat oven to Fan Oven 180°C /200°C/400°F/Gas mark 6

Step 2

Breadcrumbs: thoroughly mix the breadcrumbs, vegetable oil and salt ensuring all the crumbs are covered in oil. Tip onto a baking tray ensuring they are spread out evenly.

Step 3

Cook in a preheated oven until they are golden brown between 4 – 9 minutes. Stir after 4 minutes and you will have a better idea of exactly how long they will take. (*See comment 2 below)

Step 4

Remove from the oven and leave to cool.

Step 5

Chicken: Slice the chicken in half horizontally.

Step 6

Batter: simply mix all ingredients together well and ensure there are no lumps. If it seems too thick add some milk a teaspoon at a time. It should be the consistency of a thick pouring cream.

Step 7

Prepare the chicken: dip the chicken in the batter ensuring each escallop is coated in a thin layer of batter.

Step 8

Allow excess batter to drip off the chicken.

Step 9

Transfer to the dish with the breadcrumbs and press the chicken into the breadcrumbs on both sides. Further pat the breadcrumbs onto the chicken to ensure they are fully stuck on.

Step 10

Lay on the greased rack on a baking tray and cook for 15 - 20 minutes or until the chicken is cooked.
