Kotopoulo pane2

Pané is the French word for breaded so Kotopoulo pané is succulent chicken pieces coated with breadcrumbs baked with potatoes.


You can use chicken with bone on but the best way to make this recipe is to remove the skin or use chicken breast fillets without the skin.

The procedure to make this breaded chicken is to dip the chicken first in milk, then coat it with flour, then wet it again with eggs and finally coat it with dried bread crumbs.

The secret to keep the chicken succulent is to start cooking the potatoes first.  After turning them over and cooking them a little bit on the other side, you place the breaded chicken on top and cook them together.  Half an hour is more than enough to cook the chicken.

When turning the potatoes over, if you see that they stick to the baking tin, add half a cup of water and put it back in the oven.  You will see that you will be able to turn the potatoes over, be easily.
