Ingredients:

1 cup whole wheat flour

3 table spoons of grated parmesan cheese

1 tablespoon seasoned salt

Salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 large eggs
2 cup seasoned breadcrumbs
2 chicken breasts, cut into small pieces
Vegetable oil, for frying
Ketchup, for serving

 

Directions:

In a plastic bag, mix the flour, seasoned salt and some salt and pepper. In a bowl, mix the eggs with 2 tablespoons water. In a separate bowl, add the breadcrumbs.

Shake the chicken pieces in the bag to coat. In batches, dip them in the egg wash, then in the breadcrumbs.

Heat about 2 inches of vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat until a few breadcrumbs dropped in the oil start to sizzle immediately. Fry the chicken, in batches if needed, until golden brown and cooked through, a couple minutes per side. Drain on a paper towel and serve with ketchup.
