READY IN: 20mins




  • Combine the flour, basil, salt and pepper in a large Ziploc bag.
  • Place the chicken breasts, one at a time, between two pieces of wax paper.
  • Pound the breasts with several whacks of a meat mallet or rolling pin to thin them evenly to a thickness of about ½ inch.
  • Peel off the paper and add the breasts to the bag with the flour mixture; shake well to coat.
  • Heat oil in a 12 inch nonstick skillet over medium high heat.
  • Meanwhile, spread the bread crumbs on a plate and beat the egg in a small bowl.
  • Dip the chicken breasts, one at a time into the egg then into the bread crumbs to coat both sides; shake off excess crumbs.
  • Add the breasts to the skillet as you coat them.
  • Cook the breasts until the chicken is cooked through with golden brown crust, 3-4 minutes on each side.
  • If the crumb coating begins to over brown, reduce the heat to medium.
