Twigie Sticks

Amber credits her mom and her grandmother, Betty Lebow, for teaching her how to cook. She made up the following recipe, and when her aunt tried her Twigie Sticks, she couldn't believe Amber made them from scratch. The aunt, Babs Mowery, sent us the recipe. Amber's dad came up with the name for the recipe.

6 slices bread
Dash of salt and pepper
Tablespoon Season-All seasoning salt
1 egg
1/4 cup milk
2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1/4 cup oil

Take bread and spices and put into a small food chopper until chopped fine. Place the chopped bread into a medium bowl, then mix milk and egg in another medium bowl. Cut the chicken into strips. Heat oil in large frying pan. First, put the chicken into the egg wash and then into the bread crumbs. Then stick it into the pan of hot oil. After both sides are brown, put uncovered into a preheated oven of 350 degrees for 15 minutes.

Amber suggests that the leftover batter be fried. Drop a spoonful of batter into hot oil and fry. She said they are yummy.
