This is a favorite way to cook chicken breasts in my family ever since my husband first tried it when a friend made it for us.
Chicken Breasts with Parmesan Cheese
- 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
- 1/2 to 1 cup flour
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 1 tbsp. olive oil
- 1/2 to 1 cup Parmesan cheese, grated (Asiago cheese would be delicious)
- 1/2 to 1 cup Italian seasoned breadcrumbs
- 1 tbsp. lemon juice
- 1-2 tsp. fresh parsley, minced if you have it, or use dried
If breasts are thick, pound them between 2 sheets of waxed paper until they are of equal thickness. Dredge chicken in flour; combine eggs and olive oil; dip chicken in this mixture. Finally combine equal parts cheese and breadcrumbs and dredge the chicken breasts in this.
Melt enough butter to saute the chicken on both sides until done, depending on the thickness of the chicken. Combine lemon juice and 1 tbsp. butter and pour over the dish during the last-minute or two of cooking. Sprinkle with minced parsley.
