2 cup flour
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
1 cup panko (Japanese breadcrumbs)
1 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
6 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
3 tbsp olive oil
2 cups chicken broth
1 cup tomato sauce
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
1) Place flour in a small bowl. In another bowl, lightly beat eggs. In a third bowl, combine panko and Parmesan cheese.
2) Place chicken between two sheets of wax paper and pound to even thickness, about 1/2-inch thick. Lightly coat chicken in flour mixture, shaking off excess. Dip into beaten eggs and then transfer to panko mixture, patting the crumbs on both sides.
3) In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add chicken and sauté until lightly browned, about 3 minutes per side. Reduce heat to low. Add chicken broth to pan, spread 3 tbsp tomato sauce on each chicken breast and sprinkle with mozzarella and Parmesan.
4) Cover skillet and simmer until chicken is cooked through, about 6 minutes.
