  • 6 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 egg whites slightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup seasoned bread crumbs
  • 1/3 cup parmesan cheese grated
  • 2/3 Tablespoon olive oil


  • Pound chicken until 1/4' thick. I bought thin chicken breasts since I don't have a tenderizer.
  • Combine flour, salt and pepper on a dinner plate. On a second plate, beat the egg whites with 1 T water. On a third plate, combine bread crumbs with the parmesan cheese.
