Ingredients
1 pkg. PERDUE® Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts, Value Pack
1/3 cup prepared pesto sauce
1/2 cup flour
1 egg, beaten with 1 tablespoon water
2/3 cup Italian seasoned bread crumbs
1/4 cup shredded or grated Parmesan cheese
3 tablespoons olive oil, divided
Lemon slices, for garnish (optional)
Fresh basil sprigs for garnish (optional)
Instructions
1 Preheat oven to 300° F.
2 Place chicken breasts between sheets of plastic wrap and pound to an even thickness of about 1/4 inch. Coat chicken with pesto, then dip in flour, then dip in egg mixture and lastly, dip in seasoned bread crumbs combined with Parmesan cheese. In a large nonstick or well-seasoned skillet, over medium heat, heat 2 tablespoons oil.
3 Add chicken and cook about 2 minutes on, each side, until coating is golden brown and chicken is cooked through.
4 Remove to a baking sheet lined with paper towels and keep warm in oven until all chicken is cooked.
5 Add more oil to the skillet as needed during frying. Garnish with lemon slices and basil.
6 Serve, if desired, with steamed broccoli florets.
