Emmy requested homemade Mac 'N Cheese for dinner, but we needed a protein to go with it. I found this recipe on Pinterest, and it did not disappoint! The chicken is so flavorful and crunchy.


4 thin sliced chicken breasts
Garlic powder
Salt & pepper
1/4 cup flour
2 eggs
2/3 cup panko breadcrumbs
1/2 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
1/2 heaping teaspoon Italian seasoning
3 tablespoons olive oil, divided


Preheat the oven to 350F.
Pat the chicken dry with paper towel. Sprinkle it with the garlic powder and some salt & pepper on both sides.
Prepare 3 bowls: one with the flour, one with the eggs (beat them with a fork), and the third with the panko/parmesan/Italian seasoning (mix it all together)
Add 2 tablespoons of olive oil to an oven-proof skillet over medium heat. Let the pan heat up while you're working on the chicken in the next step.
Meanwhile, coat the chicken pieces in the flour. You will then dip each piece in the egg, followed by the breadcrumb mixture (shake off any excess at each of the 3 steps).You may need to gently press the chicken into the breadcrumbs to make them stick.
Add 2 of the chicken pieces to the skillet and cook for around 2-3 minutes/side until golden. I use tongs to easily flip the chicken. Transfer the chicken to a plate, and for the second batch, add the remaining tablespoon of olive oil to the skillet. Once you've fried all the chicken, take the skillet off the heat and arrange all 4 pieces inside. Transfer the skillet to the oven and cook for 5 minutes or until cooked through (chicken is done when an instant read thermometer reads 165F).


If you don't have an oven safe skillet, transfer the chicken to a glass casserole dish to finish cooking in the oven.
