  • 6 Chicken Filets, white
  • 2 tbs Canola Oil
  • 3 tbs Pan Molida, bread crumbs
  • 1/2tbs Salt
  1. Start out by placing the pan molida in a small bowl and add the salt, mix these 2 ingredients well.
  2. Next, put the oil in a medium sized pan and set the stove to medium high. Allow the oil to get hot.
  3. Now, take the chicken filets and place them one at a time on a plate. With your hands, grab dime sized pinches of the pan molida mix and pat it onto the chicken filet until completely covered on both sides.
  4. Once you have done this with each filet, then place the filets one at a time into the frying pan.
  5. Allow to cook on each side approximately 4 minutes or until golden brown and juice runs clear.
  6. Place cooked filets on a dish lined with paper towels, allow to cool slightly then, serve.

These chicken filets make a great main dish accompanied by rice or beans and warm tortillas. They are also great on a torta. (sandwich)
