Latke-Crusted Chicken

  • 1 and 1/2 pounds chicken breasts (about 4 medium sized), butterflied and split in half (8 thin pieces of chicken)

  • 1 (6-ounce) box Manischewitz Homestyle Latke Mix

  • 1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons oil, divided


  • 2 sprigs rosemary, finely chopped (about 1 tablespoon), plus additional whole sprigs for garnish

  • salt

  • pepper


Prepare the Chicken


Pour the latke mix into a shallow dish. Dredge the thin chicken breasts in the mix on both sides, making sure to completely cover the chicken.


Heat the 1/4 cup oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Pan-fry the chicken breasts in the oil until browned, about five minutes on each side. (Add additional oil, if necessary, halfway through.) Place the chicken on a paper towel-lined baking sheet in a single layer and keep warm in a 200-degree-Fahrenheit oven.

Prepare the Sauce


Discard any residue from the bottom of the pan and old cooking oil. Add the remaining two tablespoons of oil. Add the shallots and sweat them for two minutes until translucent. Add the mushrooms and cook for 10 minutes, or until they’ve reduced in size and are golden.


Increase the heat to medium-high. Add the apple cider and de-glaze the pan. Cook for three to five minutes, or until liquid has reduced and thickened.


Sprinkle in the two tablespoons of flour and allow to cook for one minute. Whisk in the chicken broth slowly and add the chopped rosemary. Increase the heat to bring the sauce to a bubble.


Reduce the heat to low and allow the sauce to simmer for five minutes and thicken. Season to taste AFTER the sauce is at the right consistency. (If you season it before it reduces and thickens, it could get too salty.)

To Serve


Arrange the chicken on a serving plate. Pour the sauce over the chicken and garnish with additional whole sprigs of rosemary. Serve immediately.
