Instructions

  1. In medium bowl using fork mash together butter, garlic, parsley, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Cover and place in refrigerator for thirty minutes.
  2. Cut small pocket (about 1.5 x 2.5 inch) in each chicken breast being careful not to cut through the top or the bottom or all the way through. Place 2 tablespoons of the butter in each chicken pocket and secure edge with toothpick.
  3. Dredge each chicken breast in flour, then in egg mixture, then in breadcrumbs, back in egg mixture and into the breadcrumbs once more. Place on cookie sheet, cover and put in freezer for 30 minutes.
  4. Heat about 1/2 inch of oil in large stockpot or dutch oven over medium heat until a bread crumb dropped in sizzles.. Add chicken breast and cook until golden brown about 4-5 minutes per side. (please see notes)
  5. Drizzle with lemon wedges and garnish with extra chopped Italian parsley.

Notes

Some thicker chicken breasts may require additional time in the oven loosely covered at 375 degrees until no longer pink.
Be careful cutting into them as they come out of the frying pan as they are stuffed with hot butter.
