  5. So the first secret to having crispy crust is to have rough bread crumbs.
  6. The secret to having a stick crust to the chicken without falling down is only to cover the chicken with one egg whisked with 1/4 cup of milk with a pinch of salt and pepper.
  7. So here we don't cover the chicken with flour first before the egg, as covering the chicken with flour first will make an insulating layer between the chicken and the bread crumbs so it is falling easily.
  8. Another important thing to put in mind is to fry your chicken fillet on medium heat to be sure that it is cooked perfectly, if you have very high heat the chicken will be burnt and take color very quickly before cooking.
  9. Be sure not to fill your pan with too many pieces as this will lower the heat of the oil to a very low point in that time your chicken breast will absorb too much oil.
  10. Last secret here is to put your chicken after cooking in a colander to get rid of any extra oil and to let your chicken face the air which will help in having a crispy crust without getting soft as a result of the steam.
