Ingredients
  • BREADING
  • ½ cup all purpose flour
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • ¼ cup Panko breadcrumbs
  • ⅔ cup seasoned Italian breadcrumbs
  • ½ cup fresh shredded Parmesan cheese
  • ¼ cup fresh grated Parmesan cheese ( I like the fine powder, it kicks it up a flavorful notch and sticks to the chicken better.)
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • Fresh chopped parsley
  • 4-8 boneless chicken breasts ( you can buy thick breasts and slice in half.)
  • Lemon wedges for garnish
Instructions
  1. Pound out chicken breasts
  2. Beat eggs in separate bowl.
  3. Place flour, and spices in separate deep plastic container. (This allows you to easily shake and coat without making a mess.)
  4. Place breadcrumbs, cheese and parsley mixture in deep plastic container.
  5. Preheat large frying pan on medium heat and coat with ¼ inch Extra Virgin Olive Oil (Just enough so chicken isn't swimming in oil. Make sure oil is hot enough before placing chicken in to fry.)
  6. Salt and pepper chicken breast
  7. Coat in flour mixture first
  8. Dip in egg mixture.
  9. Coast in breadcrumb mixture.
  10. Wait until all breast have been coated and place in pan together.
  11. Test oil by dropping in small amount of breadcrumbs. If it sizzles you are good to go.
  12. Fry on one side about 6 minutes until golden brown. Flip and repeat.
  13. Drain on paper towels
  14. Plate and serve with lemon wedges.
