Re-post: Chicken In A Basket

Cute name, isn't it. After watching the movie 'V for Vendetta' last year, I did a little research. The first time I cooked it, Wey ate four pieces of chicken in a basket! When he got tired of it, I added the bacon, and he went all uncontrollable again. Try it on your kids, or even their father. Chicken in A Basket 1 pc thick-cut white bread 1 egg butter salt n pepper P1060548 1. Butter the bread quite generously (for health reasons, I do one side only) and, using kitchen scissors, cut a hole (smaller than size of a tennis ball) in the bread. 2. Heat up a pan (non-stick is easiest, but not for me; all that Teflon) and put the bread butter-side down. Now add a little bit of oil/butter in the hole if you're not using non-stick ware. Crack the egg in and cook at medium heat. 3. Season lightly with salt and pepper. Turn over and cook the other side. P1060550 For pig n chicken in a basket, lay a rasher of streaky bacon (whatever pattern) on the pan and turn over when it's half-done( do use a paper towel to soak up some of the oil if health-conscious). Now lay the cut bread over it, making sure the hole is over the bacon. Crack the egg in. I don't salt this, just pepper it. P1060551 Serve it for breakfast with a glass of freshly-squeezed orange juice!

Hi Terri!

I made those toasts and ate for at least a week, which was a refreshing change to my daily cereal for breakfast.

I've never seen the movie, so thank you for posting! :-D

Oh my god. I love chicken in a basket. It was the first breakfast dish I learned to make, I was about 9 or so when I started making it. I've added shredded cheese on top, but the addition of bacon to it is simply genius. Maybe bacon on one side, and a bit of shredded cheddar on the other? Man, I'm hungry now.
