Use a tray to hold the chicken while you bread the rest of the chicken.

Place the butter into a skillet and melt over medium heat.

After the vegetables are cooked, take them out of the pan and place them in a bowl. Set aside.

In a skillet, heat up the oil and place the chicken in. Cook for about 3-5 minutes on each side. (The chicken will be crispy and a golden brown)

Next, put the finished chicken on a plate. Then, pour out the oil into the pan.

    We didn't care for the chicken, my granddaughter didn't like the pasta either. I thought the pasta was pretty good, no mushrooms, but there is another similar pasta recipe I prefer. Won't make again.
