Blogmas 12/8 – Holiday Recipes: East Butler Chicken

A recipe today! I figured I’d float away from book for a little during this blogmas

This recipe brought to you by the lovely ladies at the East Butler Fire Hall. That’s where my mother got the recipe, and it’s what she’s given to me.

East Butler Chicken is the easy go-to recipe when you need to cook a lot of meat for a lot of people and you want it to taste good but not need a lot of prep.ebchicken

So you’ll notice it looks like it’s swimming in butter. That’s because it’s swimming in butter.

I didn’t say this was a healthy recipe. Just a good one. The ingredients below don’t really have measurements – all of this is eyeballed and all of it always has been.


Boneless chicken breasts and/or thighs. I prefer the white meat myself, but whatever floats your boat

Margarine/Butter. A lot. You can vary how much you want to use, but the more you use, the more tender the chicken will be.

Italian breadcrumbs. Again, a lot.

Seasoned salt. Some.

1 egg (may need more depending on how much chicken you’re making. You’ll see what I mean)

2 tsp water


Preheat your oven to 350F (not sure what that is in C). Get to bowls – crack the egg into one of them, pour the breadcrumbs into the other. Add the water to the egg and mix it up.

Get a baking pan and spray it with non-stick stuff.

Dip each chicken piece into the egg wash, then into the bread crumbs. Thoroughly coat the chicken.

Place the chicken into the pan. Repeat until you’re out of chicken.

Sprinkle seasoned salt over the top of the chicken to taste. You don’t need a whole super lot.

If you have extra breadcrumbs, sprinkle that too. It’ll soak up the butter.

Take a pat of butter and put it on a piece of chicken. Repeat for all the chickens. There will be a lot of butter. If you’re health conscious, maybe use half a pat? Better yet, you may want to avoid this recipe all together. This is a holiday recipe for a reason, hawhaw.

Place the pan in the oven. Depending on how large/small you cut your chicken, starting checking it around 30 min – when the chicken has no pink, take it out and put it in your face.


More bread crumbs = better

More butter = better

Just a friendly word of advice. 😛

Also, you’ll likely need to plan for a nap after your meal.

Happy eating! :”D
