Ingredients

2
chicken breasts, boneless & skinless
1/2 c
flour
1
egg, beaten with milk
2 Tbsp
milk, beaten with egg
1 c
breadcrumbs
4 Tbsp
parmesan cheese
1 tsp
salt
1 tsp
black papper
1 tsp
garlic powder
1 tsp
paprika
1 tsp
thyme
2 Tbsp
butter
2-3 Tbsp
olive oil
1
lemon, cut into wedges

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Cut chicken breasts in half, lengthwise, halving the thickness. Place a half in a gallon zipper bag or between two pieces of plastic wrap. With a meat hammer, pound out until 1/8" thick. Repeat with each breast half. Often times I will do this the night before and marinate the chicken in Italian dressing overnight in the fridge. It just adds an extra layer of flavor.
2
Place flour, salt, and pepper in a dish.
Mix egg and milk in a separate dish.
Mix bread crumbs, parmesan cheese, garlic powder, paprika, and thyme in a third dish.

(I use 8" baking pans or pie plates for all 3)
3
Heat butter and oil in a skillet, on medium-high.
4
Dredge each piece of chicken in flour, then dip into egg mixture, then dredge in breadcrumb mixture.
5
Saute breaded chicken piece in skillet 3-4 minutes on each side, until dark golden brown. Serve with lemon wedges.
