Campers love our meals! We offer some classic family recipes and also introduce new recipes that kids may not have tried yet. Camp is the place to try new things… including food!
Parents are always asking for our recipes. Our Chefs are the true all-stars for one of our favorite meals, which we call Favorite Chicken. Here is the recipe and instructions for how to make it!
Ingredients: 4 large chicken breasts salt & pepper to taste 2 eggs 1 cup Italian bread crumbs 8 cloves of garlic (minced) 4 tablespoons butter 4 tablespoons olive oil 1 half-cup of capers with juice 4 whole ripe lemons
Preparation Pound chicken breasts with a mallet until they are ¼ inch thick.
Whip eggs in a bowl. Pour bread crumbs onto a plate.
Dip chicken breast in whipped eggs, then coat both sides in Italian bread crumbs.
Lightly salt and pepper both sides of chicken breast. Set aside.
Melt 1 tablespoon butter and 1 tablespoon olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add garlic and sauté for 1 minute. You want your garlic to brown, not burn!
Add 1 chicken breast and cook for 2-3 minutes on one side. Flip chicken breast to the other side. Cook for one minute.
Add 1 tablespoon of capers. Then squeeze juice from one lemon (or freshly squeezed lemon juice) on to the chicken breast. Be careful when oil starts to sizzle! Top the skillet with a lid as chicken breast continues to cook for one more minute.
**If you have a large skillet and are able to cook all 4 chicken breasts at one time, add all 4 tablespoons of olive oil, 4 tablespoons of butter, 4 lemons and a half cup of capers.
Remove chicken breast and keep warm in the oven as you cook the remaining pieces of chicken, repeating steps 5 and 6.
We recommend serving Favorite Chicken with your preferred pasta and broccolini! Bon appetit!
