Goat Cheese, Orange, Fried Chicken Layers

Goat Cheese, Orange, Fried Chicken
     This dish was inspired by one of those dishes we serve at the restaurant I work at. We serve a great pecan crusted chicken that is cut into slices and served with a strawberry balsamic glaze with fresh strawberries. I took the rough idea of slices and stacks and turned it into my own dish. This dish is so simple and fresh. Full of deliciousness and multiple flavors that actually complement each other. The spice from the chicken, the citrus from the orange, and the tartness and creaminess from the goat cheese blend well together. Top it off with a little maple syrup and viola, a fantastic dinner entrĂ©e that anyone can enjoy. Goat Cheese, Orange, Fried Chicken Layers.
  • 1 large chicken breast
  • 1 orange peeled and sliced
  • Goat cheese
  • Corn flake crumbs
  • Cayenne pepper
  • Maple Syrup
  • Flour
  • 1 egg
       1.       Make a three place dredging station of flour, beaten egg, and a combination of cornflake crumbs and cayenne pepper.
2.       Dredge thawed out chicken into flour, then egg, then cornflake crumb mixture.
3.       In a large skillet filled with about a half inch of oil, fry chicken on both sides over medium high heat until golden brown on each side.
4.       Heat oven to 350 degrees and place chicken in baking dish and bake for 25 minutes.
5.       Meanwhile peel the orange and slice into about 1/3 inch slices.
6.       Once chicken is cooked through, slice into equal size pieces. Layer one slice of chicken followed by an orange slice, and then spread or crumble some goat cheese and repeat with layers.
7.       Drizzle some fresh maple syrup and serve.
     This dish was so amazing that I was sad I only made one plate. You can always increase the amounts depending on how many you are serving but trust me this will be a favorite of everyone.
