How to Make Crispy Chicken Romano


  • 1Preheat broiler to HIGH. Sprinkle both side of chicken with salt and pepper.
  • 2In a shallow prep dish combine 3/4 cup of the cheese, breadcrumbs/panko and flour; mix well.
  • 3Place the whisked eggs in another prep bowl. Dip chicken in eggs first then roll in the cheese/breadcrumbs, pressing to adhere if necessary.
  • 4In 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.
  • 5Transfer chicken to a serving platter and garnish with a light sprinkle of cheese, lemon slices and fresh basil.
