2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts

1/4 cup all-purpose flour

3 large Land O Lakes® Eggs

1/4 cup Land O Lakes® Half & Half

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Mix together the eggs and half-and-half. Set aside.

  2. STEP 2

    Place your palm flat against the top of each chicken breast andcarefully slice each piece in half horizontally; you will now have fourthinner chicken breast pieces. Place each chicken cutlet between twosheets of waxed paper and pound until very thin. (You may use a malletor a rolling pin.)

  3. STEP 3

    Have three separate dishes (I use pie pans): 1 for flour, 1 for the egg/half-and-half mixture, 1 for the seasoned breadcrumbs.

  4. STEP 4

    Season chicken with salt and pepper, then bread the chicken by dippingeach piece in flour (dredging both sides), then the egg mixture, thenthe breadcrumbs. Lay each piece on a clean plate until you're ready tocook. You should have four heavily breaded pieces of very thin chicken.

  5. STEP 5

    Heat 2 tablespoons Land O Lakes® Butter with Olive Oil & Seasalt in a skillet over medium-low heat. When melted and hot, add 2pieces of breaded chicken and cook on both sides until breading isgolden brown and chicken is cooked (about 2-3 minutes per side.) Removefrom the skillet, then add the other 2 tablespoons butter to the skilletand cook the other two pieces of chicken.

  6. STEP 6

    To serve, place one piece of cooked chicken on a plate. Top generouslywith arugula, spinach, or salad greens. Squeeze lemon juice over thegreens, then sprinkle with a little kosher or sea salt. Finally, shavesome pieces of Parmesan using a vegetable peeler and sprinkle shavingsover each piece.
