Method:

Stove Top

Ingredients

5
(approx. 5 ounce) skinless chicken breasts or thighs, pounded to 1/4" thickness
1 c
freshly grated romano cheese (asiago, reggiano, grana padano or similar)
1/2 c
fine breadcrumbs or panko, more if needed
2 Tbsp
flour, more if needed
2
eggs, lightly beaten
1/4 c
grape seed oil (or similar oil that can withstand high heat)
2 Tbsp
fresh lemon juice

GARNISHES:

*fresh* basil leaves
lemon slices

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat broiler to HIGH. Sprinkle both side of chicken with salt and pepper.
2
In a shallow prep dish combine 3/4 cup of the cheese, breadcrumbs/panko and flour; mix well.
3
Place the whisked eggs in another prep bowl. Dip chicken in eggs first then roll in the cheese/breadcrumbs, pressing to adhere if necessary.
4
In a large ovenproof skillet heat the oil over medium-high heat. Add chicken and cook 3-5 minutes per side or until chicken pieces are golden brown and no longer pink. Garnish remaining cheese over the chicken and place in oven. Broil 1 to 2 minutes or *just* until the cheese melts.
5
Transfer chicken to a serving platter and garnish with a light sprinkle of cheese, lemon slices and fresh basil.
