A basic, simple recipe for pan fried chicken. I add a teaspoon of cocoa powder to the flour and sometimes some freshly ground black pepper in the breadcrumbs.
Nice easy pan fried boneless, skinless chicken recipe. I seasoned the chicken with salt and pepper and used seasoned bread crumbs. The cocoa gives the chicken a nice flavor that you won't guess is cocoa. I would make this again! Thanks for a great unique recipe. - 08 May 2013
I was a little disappointed and maybe a little relieved that I could not taste the chocolate in this recipe! I also found that frying the chicken over med-high heat was too high--the chicken was dark brown on the outside and raw in the middle. The coating was crispy and delicious, though. I will make this again, omitting the cocoa and cooking on a lower heat, and I think I will end up with an awesome recipe for chicken nuggets! - 25 Mar 2002 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
As the recipe is written, the cocoa powder really doesn't add much. I have made chili in the past with cocoa powder so I added some chili powder and garlic powder as well. It was fantastic with those additions. Cocoa really enhances chili flavors. Try it this way you'll like it!! - 21 Jan 2007 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
