  3. Heat oil in a pan over medium heat.
  4. Lightly dust the chicken in the flour, shaking off any excess.
  5. Dip the chicken in the egg mixture, shaking off any excess.
  6. Press the chicken into the breadcrumbs to coat on all sides and shake off any excess.
  7. Cook the chicken in the oil in the pan until golden brown on both sides and place on a baking pan.
  8. Sprinkle on the mozzarella and bake in a preheated 350F/180C oven until the cheese has melted, about 5-10 minutes.
