How To Get Egg Batter to Adhere to Chicken?

zackly | Aug 8, 202004:41 AM     19

Any tricks to get eggs to adhere to chicken breasts when making Chicken Francaise?
I flour then dip the pounded cutlets (scallopini) in beaten eggs. I then pan fry in olive oil and butter in a medium/low non-stick pan (Teflon). The retention of the egg batter is not great, ok but not great. I’m wondering if there are any tricks I’m unaware of? My ingredients are at a cool room temperature. I use all-purpose flour. Would bread or cake flour work better? Any ideas? Thanks!
