Garlic Chicken - With Barbismoked™ Lemon & Mint Smoked Garlic

Ingredients

2 – 3 cloves Barbismoked™ Lemon & Mint Smoked Garlic
1 lemon
6 saltine crackers
2 tablespoons butter
4 sprigs of fresh Italian parsley
sea salt
freshly ground black pepper
2 heaped tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 large free-range egg
2 skinless higher-welfare chicken breast fillets
olive oil


Method
To prepare your chicken:
Peel the Lemon & Mint Smoked Garlic and zest the lemon

• Put your crackers into a food processor with the butter, garlic, parsley sprigs, lemon zest and a pinch of salt and pepper

• Whiz until the mixture is very fine, then pour these crumbs on to a plate

• Sprinkle the flour on to a second plate

• Crack the egg into a small bowl and beat with a fork

• Lightly score the underside of the chicken breasts

• Put a square of plastic wrap over each one and bash a few times with the bottom of a pan until the breasts flatten out a bit

• Dip the chicken into the flour until both sides are completely coated, then dip into the egg and finally into the flavored crumbs

• Push the crumbs on to the chicken breasts so they stick – you want the meat to be totally coated
To cook your chicken:
You can either bake or fry the chicken

• If baking, preheat your oven to its highest temperature (240°C/475˚F/gas 9), place your chicken on a sheet pan and cook for 15 minutes

• If frying, put a frying pan on a medium heat, add a few good lugs of olive oil and cook the chicken breasts for 4 to 5 minutes on each side, until cooked through, golden and crisp
To serve your chicken:
Either serve the chicken breasts whole, or cut them into strips and pile them on a plate • Beautiful and simple served with a lemon wedge for squeezing over, and a tiny sprinkling of salt • Great with a lovely fresh salad or simply dressed veggies.
