Story Behind this Recipe
I love chicken tender piccata, so I came up with a Japanese-flavor version. The mustard is optional. I recommend rock salt or natural salt to sprinkle on top at the end.
If you cover the chicken completely with the flour and then dip in the egg mixture, it'll keep the coating on. Also I recommend heating the teflon frying pan well. To keep the chicken from burning and the coating from coming off, add some oil to the pan.
