This technique can be applied to bone-in chicken thighs (remove flesh from the bone, and pound)or an even easier option of boneless, skinless chicken breasts. Serve with warm pasta, steamed potatoes, or rice, with a little marinera sauce on both the meat and starch.

- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1 tablespoon grated parmesan cheese

- 1 teaspoon dried basil
- 4 slices ripe tomatoes
- 4 slices mozzarella cheese (fresh, if possible)
- Nip into the chops where the flesh meets the bone, about 1/4".
- Cover with wax paper and GENTLY pound meat until thin, and doubled in size.
- Season meat with scant salt and pepper.

Delicious! I love the simplicity of this dish, but it has a lot of flavor. I used boneless chicken breasts and didn't use a full half cup of oil, I didn't see that it was necessary. I served these over spaghetti tossed in olive oil, sundried tomatoes and herbs and it was a big hit. Thanks for posting!
Great pork chop recipe! My chops weren't an inch thick so I just reduced my cooking time a little in the skillet and a little in the oven. I hate to inform you Chef Blade, but this does not serve 4 people....it only served 2...oink, oink!
