Tortilla-Crusted Chicken

Tortilla Crusted Chicken recipe from Dr. Gourmet

I created this recipe after I had to start eating gluten free. I love the crispy crust that melba toast provides for my Oven Fried Chicken recipe and I was trying to figure out how I might get a similar effect but with a coating that is gluten free. Taco shells seemed the right choice.


The key techniques in this recipe are:

a. Using a mini-chopper.
b. Cutting small chicken filets from a complete chicken breast.
c. The importance of clean up after handling chicken.
d. Battering and coating chicken with the two hand technique.
e. Sautéing coated chicken with minimal fat.
f. Using touch to tell when cooking meat is done.

Here's the recipe for Tortilla-Crusted Chicken without the pictures.
