  • 1 pound chicken breasts, boneless, skinless and butterflied or pounded thin
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 teaspoon oregano (or Italian herb blend)
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 2 cups parmigiano reggiano (parmesan cheese), shredded
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  1. Season the chicken with salt and pepper to taste.
  2. Mix the eggs, oregano, garlic powder, and onion powder.
  3. Dip the chicken into the egg mixture, and gently shake off excess before pressing into the parmesan to coat.
  4. Heat the oil and melt the butter in a large heavy button skillet over medium-high heat, add the chicken and cook until golden brown, about 3-4 minutes per side, before setting aside on a rack. (Note: You may need to cook the chicken in batches depending on the size of the pan.)

Option: Hit the chicken with a splash of lemon juice after cooking!
Option: Garish with chopped parsley.
Option: Mix 1 cup panko breadcrumbs into the parmesan cheese for a crispier parmesan coating!
