I no long consume meat but my boyfriend does. Since he is joining me on my quest to eat clean I like to surprise him with a little fried chicken once every 6 months. Frying in olive oil has never been a problem for me, but I have heard that frying with olive oil is not recommend, so you can adjust the recipe if you so desire. Thinning and pounding chicken makes it tender, and the mustard adds wonderful flavor. This is one of my boyfriend favorite recipe, I hope you enjoy.
