Sprinkle chicken with salt, pepper and paprika and dredge in breadcrumbs. Heat 2 tablespoons of oil in a large non-stick skillet and heat until hot. Cook chicken pieces for 3 minutes on each side or until they are well browned. Repeat until all chicken has been browned. 

Place chicken on a wire rack (like a cookie cooling rack) above a cookie sheet. Bake for 35 minutes or until chicken is done.  Enjoy!!
