Ingredients

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 1/2 to 2 cups Japanese breadcrumbs (panko)
  • vegetable oil
  • 1 1/3 cups Pimiento Cheese
  • Garnish: chopped fresh chives

Preparation

  1. 1. Sprinkle chicken evenly with 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper.
  2. 2. Whisk together 1/2 cup milk and egg. Dip chicken in milk mixture, and dredge in breadcrumbs.
  3. 3. Pour oil to a depth of 1/8 inch in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook chicken in hot oil about 10 minutes on each side or until done.
  4. 4. Transfer chicken to a baking sheet. Hold chicken with tongs, and cut a slit in 1 side of each chicken breast to form a pocket. Spoon 1/3 cup Pimiento Cheese into each pocket.
  5. 5. Bake at 350° for 2 to 3 minutes or until cheese is melted. Garnish, if desired, and serve immediately.
