Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 20 minutes
- 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
For the breading
- 1 cup flour seasoned with ½ tsp salt and pepper
- 3 large eggs beaten and seasoned with a pinch of salt
- 2 cups breadcrumbs (Panko, Italian or fresh)
- 1 cup finely grated Parmesan cheese
- 2 tsp dried herb mix
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- ½ tsp paprika
- 1 tsp salt
Place the chicken on a cutting board. Place your hand flat onto the chicken then carefully slice the chicken in half horizontally, creating two cutlets out of every chicken breast.
Place the chicken aside and prepare the breading station.
Put the seasoned flour and eggs into separate bowls big enough to comfortably bread the chicken.
Combine the breadcrumbs, Parmesan cheese and seasoning in a third bowl and mix well.
Preheat a large pan or skillet over medium high heat and add oil.
Coat the chicken first in the flour, then in the egg and finally in the seasoned breadcrumbs, pressing the breadcrumbs into the chicken.
Carefully add the chicken to the hot pan (2-3 cutlets at a time) and cook for 2-3 minutes per side or until the chicken is cooked through and golden brown on both sides.
Remove from the pan and allow to drain on kitchen paper before serving with lemon wedges.
