Healthy Breaded Chicken Recipe

The search for what to make for dinner never ends. You want something healthy, your child wants something delicious, and your husband wants something different. Trying to combine all our wishes, I am on a constant search for a new recipe for chicken. I was on the lookout for a recipe for healthy chicken nuggets when I remembered that my mom is famous for making a Russian dish called “Katleti.” I called her to get this delicious breaded chicken recipe, and it came out so good, that I wanted to share it with all of you. As always, I urge you to use organic and local ingredients when possible.
