removing grease from prebreaded, partially cooked fried breasts [moved from Site Talk board]

I was given a couple of large (10 lb) bags of frozen prebreaded fried chicken breast (they look like what a fast food joint would use for a chicken parm or other sandwich) by a trucker who claimed that a restaurant refused his delivery. They are not poisoned or bad...I have eaten them and am still here. They actually taste okay, but they are really greasy. I don't like wasting food but they are altogether too greasy and if I can't cut down the grease on them I will have to discard them. Is there an easy way to remove excess oil other than just cooking them (I've tried baking, broiling, and frying) and blotting with paper towelling? (which just ain't enough!) If I stick them into a deep fryer at the appropriate temperature will the grease in the breading leach out?
