  • 12 ozs Chicken Breast (pounded thin)

  • 2 1/16 ozs Unbleached All Purpose Flour
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 cup Bread Crumbs
  • 1/4 cup Parmigiano Reggiano (finely grated)

  • Pat the chicken dry and season with salt and pepper.

  • Coat the chicken in the flour, shaking off any excess, and then in the egg, followed by the bread crumbs. Repeat with any remaining pieces.
