2. Coat the chicken in flour, then fry in a generous amount of oil until both sides are crisp. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
3. Shred the cheese into the frying pan. When it starts to melt, toss the chicken to coat. Do not use melting type cheese.

Story Behind this Recipe

My family loves cheese.
We love to sandwich cheese in meats like pork and chicken.
We can't get enough of the crispy cheese filling that spills out, but it never feels like enough. We made this recipe to get our fill of deliciously melted, yet crispy cheese.
