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
