    1. 1
      Rinse chicken and pat it dry.
    2. 2
      It works best thin, so put the chicken breasts between two sheets of waxed paper and pound them to about 1/3" thick.
    3. 3
      Pour beaten egg in shallow bowl.
    4. 4
      In a shallow dish or pan, combine basil, oregano, pepper, salt, and grated cheese.
    5. 5
      Brush chicken with the lemon juice, then dip both sides in the beaten egg.
    6. 6
      Next, coat chicken with the cornmeal mixture.
    7. 7
      Let chicken sit on a wire rack for 20-30 minutes.
    8. 8
      Spray George Foreman two sided grill with nonstick cooking spray.
    9. 9
      Cook chicken for 4-7 minutes until thoroughly cooked, brown and crisp.

      i really liked this chicken. The crust itself was dry but I couldn't believe how juicy and succulent the chicken was inside. The crust was flavored nicely and I liked how the crust didn't just fall off like say, shake n bake does in the oven.

      Made this for supper tonight as a tag for the Bargain Basement tag game. I thought this was okay, but not great. But then I realized I didn't follow instructions correctly! I mixed the cornmeal in with the parm and herbs. And I think I overcooked some. It was a tad dry and would definitely put more cheese in next time! I'm not really sure what the lemon juice added; might leave that out next time. It was a very pretty dish!
