  2. Lay chicken breasts between 2 sheets of plastic wrap and pound to 1/2-inch thickness.

  5. In third shallow bowl, combine breadcrumbs with 1 tablespoon parsley.
  6. Dredge chicken in flour; dip in egg, turning to coat all sides. Then, dredge chicken in breadcrumbs.
  7. In large, nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, warm olive oil. Saute chicken until nicely browned on each side, about 2 minutes per side. Transfer chicken to shallow baking dish.
