  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons of Parmesan cheese, grated
  • 3 teaspoons of olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons of butter
  • 1 tablespoon of minced garlic

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Pinch ground black pepper

  1. With a meat mallet, pound chicken breasts to 1/2-inch thick. In a small bowl, combine flour and cheese. Dredge both sides of chicken breast in flour mixture.
  2. In a large sauté pan, sauté chicken breasts in 1 teaspoon olive oil for 3-5 minutes on each side or until cooked through. Remove from pan.
