2 chicken breasts, cut into 3 pieces vertically 4 egg whites, beaten with 1 tbsp water
then sliced in half horizontally 1 1/2 cups breadcrumbs, I use seasoned
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese my marinara sauce or sugo recipe
1 tsp dried basil, crushed between your fingers 1 tsp salt
I usually put all the chicken breasts on a cutting board, place a piece of plastic wrap over the whole thing, and using a metal mallet, or rolling pin, flatten so they are just about uniform. Have egg whites in a bowl. In a flat casserole dish, put in breadcrumbs, basil, salt and parmesan cheese. Mix together with a fork. Heat oven to 425 and have a sheet pan lined with parchment ready to go. Dip each piece of chicken in the egg whites and place in breadcrumbs, and with the other hand, coat the chicken with the crumbs. Place on baking sheet. Bake for 10 minutes, turn over and bake another ten. Take out of the oven and place more grated cheese on each piece. Place pieces of chicken onto cooling rack so the bottom of each piece doesn't get soggy. Cover with your favorite pasta sauce and serve with pasta. Bon appetit!
