· 1 1/2 lb chicken breast ((2 large))· 1 Tbsp olive oil (to sautee)· 1 Tbsp parsley (to garnish (optional))· 1/2 lemon (sliced for garnish (optional))· 2 large eggs· 1 garlic clove (minced)· 1/2 tsp Italian seasoning· 1/2 tsp salt· 1/4 tsp ground black pepper· 1 cup Parmesan cheese (grated)· 3 Tbsp all-purpose flour· 8 Tbsp butter· 2 garlic cloves (minced)· 1/4 cup lemon juice· 1/4 cup chicken broth· 1/4 tsp ground black pepper

Step 1Cut the chicken breasts in half lengthwise. Lightly beat with a meat mallet until even in thickness.Step 2In a bowl, whisk together the ingredients for the egg mixture. In another bowl, combine the ingredients for the parmesan mixture. Dip chicken into the egg mixture, then dredge chicken in the parmesan mixture. Allow any excess ingredients to fall off from each bowl.Step 3In a large skillet, heat enough oil to cover the bottom of a skillet. Once hot, add the chicken and cook 4-5 minutes per side, or until crispy, golden and cooked through to 165˚F on an Instant Read Thermometer. Reduce the heat if chicken browns too quickly.Step 4Meanwhile, in a separate saucepan, melt butter and garlic, cook until fragrant. Add the chicken broth, lemon juice and pepper.
