How to Store

If you have any leftover chicken, you can save it for later. Put it in a container that closes tightly and keep it in the fridge. When you want to eat it again, it’s a good idea to use the oven to warm it up. Set the oven to 350°F (175°C) and put the chicken in for about 10-15 minutes. This way, it will stay nice and crispy, not just like when it was freshly cooked of course.

Notes

  • To make the chicken nice and soft, you can use a meat mallet. It's like giving the chicken a gentle tap to make it all the same thickness before adding the coating.
  • When you can, try to use fresh lemon skin (zest) and fresh garlic that you chop up. Fresh stuff makes the food taste way better.
  • When you put the breading on the chicken, press it down really well. That way, it will be crunchy and tasty all over.
  • To make sure the chicken is just right and not too cooked, you can use a special thermometer. It tells you when the chicken is ready to eat, like a magic temperature number (165°F or 74°C).
