Directions Step-By-Step

In a shallow plate combine breadcrumbs, cheese and potato flakes.
Spray each chicken piece front and back with either pam or olive oil in a mister.
Dredge chicken into breadcrumb mixture and coat both sides.
Coat the bottom of a non stick skillet with olive oil on medium heat add the chicken and cook both sides through and until golden brown. About 3 minutes each side for thin cutlets. You'll have to cook them in batches. Transfer to a plate and cover with foil to keep warm.
In the same pan add a tablespoon of olive oil and garlic until it just starts to get golden add red pepper flake and then add about a 1/3 cup of white wine. Finally add the tomatoes and basil. Cook for a few minutes stirring until sauce slightly thickens.
Put each cutlet in a plate, spoon sauce over cutlets and serve.
I usually make garlic bread and a salad with this.
