This was a very good chicken francese dinner, enjoyed by all. It needs a little flavor boost. I zested a lemon into the egg/Parm mixture; next time I will use two lemons. And I will definitely pound the chicken breast next time until it's very flat. Perhaps a bit more salt and pepper in the mix as well. I added smoked paprika to the flour. Also I did not need this much flour, probably 1/3 c. or less would do. All in all this was a pleasing dinner and something I would make again with minor tweaks. Thanks for posting!
