  • 1 egg
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1 cup Parmesan cheese, grated, shredded, or however you prefer
  • 1/2 cup  bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup flour (plain flour will do)
  • 1 lb chicken breasts (these should be thin, we recommend four pieces for four servings- add one piece per serving if you need to make more)
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 tbsp olive oil


  • First of all, you want to dry the chicken with a paper towel and prepare two bowls. In one bowl you will put the egg, salt, pepper, garlic powder, and Italian seasoning. Don’t forget to whisk the egg mixture.
  • Your second bowl is for your parmesan, bread crumbs, and flour.
  • Now that your bowls are prepared with their individual mixtures, you need to soak the chicken breast piece into the egg and seasoning mixture, making sure that it is covered. Once it is coated in this mixture, place it into your second bowl, coating it in the parmesan mixture. Do this side by side to ensure that every part of your chicken is coated in the tasty mixture. Do this for each chicken piece. Once you are done place your chicken onto a flat surface, a clean cutting board will do.
  • Get your skillet/pan (stainless steel or non-stick are the best in our opinion). Set it on medium heat and melt your butter and add in your olive oil.
  • Place your delicious parmesan crusted chicken pieces into your skillet/pan and cook for a few minutes on one side. To prevent the cheese from sliding off before it adheres to the surface of your chicken, press down lightly with a spatula or a flat end of your tongs. Turn the chicken over once one side is done, do this with tongs to avoid losing any of the coatings, and repeat. Cook for not more than 8 minutes in total per piece of chicken. If you have a timer this is a good way to manage your cooking time.
  • The best way to check your chicken is done is to cut it open. The middle is the hardest part to chook and the last part to receive heat, so cut it to see the middle. If it is not cooked through, place your pan on low heat and cook for a few more minutes. Once it is done serve up immediately and enjoy! Well done!
