  • For Everything Slaw:
  • 2 cups shredded cabbage
  • 2 tablespoons red onions diced
  • 1/4 cup cilantro diced
  • 1/2 tablespoon white sugar
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon Everything Bagel Spice or to taste


  • Place a large piece of plastic wrap on a counter or cutting board and place the chicken breasts down, spaced a few inches apart.
  • Cover chicken with more plastic wrap and pound to about 1/4 inch thin with a mallet or heavy pan. Take out your anger!
  • Put pounded chicken in a medium bowl and pour pickle juice on top. Toss chicken in juice and refrigerate for 30 minutes, rotating a few times.
  • While chicken is brining, make the slaw!
  • Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl and refrigerate for 30 minutes to marinate flavors.
  • When the chicken is ready, dry well.
  • Put the flour, whisked egg and Panko each in separate shallow bowls. Season the flour with 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt and season the Panko with 1 tablespoon Everything Bagel Spice.
  • Heat 1/2 inch oil in a 12-inch saute pan over medium heat until 375 degrees F.
  • Meanwhile, coat each chicken breast in flour, shake it off, then egg, <g class="gr_ gr_121 gr-alert gr_spell gr_inline_cards gr_run_anim ContextualSpelling" id="121" data-gr-id="121">drip</g> it off, then Panko. Use alternative hands for the dry and wet <g class="gr_ gr_122 gr-alert gr_spell gr_inline_cards gr_run_anim ContextualSpelling" id="122" data-gr-id="122">dipping</g> so your hands stay clean-ish!
  • Fry chicken breasts in oil 2-3 minutes per side or until golden brown.
  • Blot fried chicken on a paper towel and serve hot with slaw and garnishes.
