Thank you to our wonderful Hostess Susan for hosting this "Foodie Friday".

Stop by for some fun and exciting recipes and fabulous pictures at http://designsbygollum.blogspot.com/

Today I'm doing Chicken-on-Stick. Basically it is like a Breaded Chicken Cutlet on a stick. My Mom and Aunt use to make these all the time. In the old days they used pork, but with being more healthy I make it with white chicken breast. I'm of Ukrainian background so any wedding or function you attended these meat on sticks or 'patychky' would appear. Those are the names we use to call them. Also they are very popular in the Polish Community here too.

I don't follow any recipe but just cut up chicken breast deboned and skinned into even cubes.. Then I set up 3 pie dishes ........ thats what I use. First one I beat eggs with a splash of water, the second dish I have flour and the third dish I use Panko and Italian seasoned breadcrumbs with a ratio of half/half. To the breadcrumbs I also add seasonings like garlic powder and salt and pepper to taste.

Firstly I skewer them onto shish kabob sticks [I use thicker ones], then coat them with flour, secondly dip into the egg mixture and thirdly into the breadcrumbs.

Heat up large skillet with Canola oil and saute for 3 min. on each side..........

When we were younger my brothers and I would fight who would get how many sticks each to eat. Now I make it for my daughter, nieces and nephews. They always request it when i have something going on in my home. :-)

Skewered and ready to be dipped into the flour, egg mixture and then breadcrumbs.

Coated and ready to be sauteed.

Sizzling away in the skillet.........

Cooked and ready to eat.
I hope that you enjoyed my Chicken recipe today. Happy Foodie Friday!!!!!!
