You can stuff, you can roll, you can bake, you can boil, but chicken is most delicious when pounded, breaded, and fried. It just has the most amazing flavor and texture… crispy and tender, like chicken was meant to be. And while this meal has its German roots, we throw a little Greek into the mix with a topping of delicious cucumber, dill, and lemon. You can bake, stuff, boil, stop, drop, and roll… wait, we confused how to cook chicken with how to put yourself out when you're on fire. Again.
