Culinary Tip # 6 Breading Chicken or Pork Chops or Meats in general

How to Make a 3 Stage Breading Station:

Make a 3 stage breading station.  What is that you ask?  It is taking what ever you are going to bread through 3 stages of breading.  Place defrosted meat on a plate to have it ready for breading.

The first stage is the flour stage.  Take your flour and season it with salt and pepper.  I like to add garlic and granulated onion to meats like chicken for instance and stir that into my flour.
The second stage is egg wash.  Crack your eggs in a bowl and add milk or water to them. 

The third stage is your breading.  You can take bread crumbs, panko crumbs, or cracker crumbs and bread your item. 

Now the process for this is to take your meat place it in the flour (known as dredging) flip shake off excess and then dip in the egg same as flour and then dip in your breading same as flour.  Place your meat in a medium hot frying pan that is lightly coated with oil or butter.  DO NOT Have your frying pan too high or it will burn the outside of the meat not brown it.  Then put in a pan to finish in the oven.  Amounts of flour, egg wash and breading depend on the amount of meat you are cooking.

How do you bread your items?  Did you ever make homemade onion rings?  What tips would you like to find out or learn about?  Send me an email and let me know.
