Parmesan Chicken
Ingredients
  • 6  skinless, boneless chicken breasts
  • 1  cup  all-purpose flour
  • 1  teaspoon  kosher salt
  • 1/2  teaspoon  freshly ground black pepper
  • 2  extra-large  eggs
  • 1 1/4  cups  seasoned dry bread crumbs
  • 1/2  cup  freshly grated Parmesan cheese, plus extra for serving
  •  Unsalted butter
  •  Good olive oil
  •  Salad greens for 6, washed and spun dry
  •  Lemon Vinaigrette (see recipe below)
Directions

1. Pound chicken breasts with a meat mallet or rolling pin until they are 1/4 inch thick.

2. Combine the flour, salt, and pepper on a dinner plate. On a second plate, beat the eggs with 1 tablespoon of water. On a third plate, combine the bread crumbs and 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese. Coat chicken breasts on both sides with flour mixture, then dip both sides into egg mixture and dredge both sides in bread crumb mixture, pressing lightly.

3. Heat 1 tablespoon of butter and 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a large saute pan and cook 2 or 3 chicken breasts on medium-low heat for 2 to 3 minutes on each side, until cooked through. Add more butter and oil and cook the rest of the chicken breasts. Toss the salad greens with Lemon Vinaigrette. Place a mound of salad on each hot chicken breast. Serve with additional grated Parmesan. Makes 6 servings.
