You Will Need
Large Non-Stick Pan
Before You Cook
To ensure food safety, the FDA recommends the following as minimum internal cooking temperatures:
Steak and Pork 145° F (rest cooked meat, 3 minutes) |
Seafood 145° F |
Chicken 165° F |
Ground Beef 160° F |
Ground Turkey 165° F |
Ground Pork 160° F
Prepare the Ingredients
Zest and halve lemon. Cut one half into two wedges and juice other half.
Pound the Chicken
Pat chicken breasts dry. Cover chicken with plastic wrap and pound with a heavy object to 1/8" thickness. Don't worry if chicken tears!
Season both sides with a pinch of salt and pepper.
Coat the Chicken
Place a large non-stick pan on medium-high heat. Add canola oil and let heat, 5 minutes.
While canola oil heats, combine flour and ¼ cup water in a mixing bowl. Place panko in another mixing bowl.
Coat chicken completely in flour-water mixture, shaking off excess. Then place in panko, flipping to coat, pressing gently to adhere.
Set breaded chicken on a plate.
Fry and Bake the Chicken
Test oil temperature by adding a pinch of panko to pan. It should sizzle gently. If it browns immediately, turn heat down and let oil cool slightly. If it doesn't brown, increase heat.
Add one chicken breast to hot oil and cook until golden, 3 minutes per side.
Flip chicken breast again, and cook 1 minute.
Transfer to prepared baking sheet. Repeat with second chicken breast.
Roast in hot oven until thickest part of chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 3-5 minutes.
While chicken bakes, make salad.
Finish the Dish
Discard mixing bowl contents and wash bowls clean.
In a large washed mixing bowl, combine 2 Tbsp. olive oil, 1 Tbsp. lemon juice, sugar, and salt and pepper to taste. Add spinach, tomatoes, and almonds and toss or stir gently to combine.
Combine mayonnaise, 1 tsp. lemon zest, and a pinch of pepper in another washed mixing bowl.
