Parmesan Crusted Chicken

This Parmesan Crusted Chicken is a simple meal idea. I use pounded thin chicken breasts, coat them in a Parmesan dressing, and then fry them so they get crispy.

This recipe requires only a few ingredients. Be sure to use shredded Parmesan cheese. Grated cheese will NOT work. I used butter to coat my pan. The butter adds a great flavor to the chicken and allows it to cook perfectly.

Parmesan Crusted Chicken

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 7 minutes
Servings: 4-6

 2 lb Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast
    1 Egg
    1 tbsp Water
    1 tsp minced Garlic
    1/2 tsp Salt
    1/2 tsp Black Pepper
    2 cup Shredded Parmesan Cheese
    4 tbsp Butter
    2 tbsp Olive Oil

Cut each chicken breast in half and pound to about 1/2” thick. In a shallow bowl, beat egg and water until blended. add garlic, salt and pepper and whisk to blend. Place Parmesan in another shallow bowl. Dip each chicken breast in the egg mixture, making sure to coat, and allow excess egg to drip off. Place in parmesan and sprinkle more Parmesan on top. Gently press, then turn and repeat on other side. Shake off excess.
Place butter and oil in a large skillet over high heat. Add chicken and do not move until edges brown—so that cheese sticks to chicken, about 3 minutes. Lightly press with a spatula, then turn over, and again, do not move until browned. Lightly press with spatula and move to a serving plate.
