Rub and firmly knead chicken breasts, legs or thighs in seasoned flour till pacified, then bathe both sides in whole whisked egg until soothed and roll about in a basin of breaded crumb until coarse and bake in the oven, accompanied by a roasting of potatoes and little Yorkshire puddings (the excess egg baste may be used in the preparation of the Yorkshire puddings). Drizzle with chicken gravy and dust with cracked black peppercorns adding a sideshow of microwaved hot Cranberry sauce and a Brusseling of boiled sprouts.
