PARMESAN CHICKEN

4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves

1/2 cup seasoned bread crumbs

1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

1/2 teaspoon dried basil

1 egg

1 Tablespoon butter

1 Tablespoon vegetable oil

 

Flatten chicken to 1/4-in. thickness.  In a shallow bowel, combine bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese and basil.  In another bowl, beat the egg.  Dip the chicken into egg, then coat with crumb mixture.  In a large skillet, brown chicken in butter and oil over medium heat for 3-5 minutes on each side or until juices run clear. 

lower-cal variation:  use plain bread crumbs, and didn’t use any oil.  don’t flatten the chicken.  Just coated it and put it in a baking dish with the melted butter in it.  Bake it for about an hour at about 325…. or until done.  Turn it over after about 1/2 an hour or 45 min.
