  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut in half
  • Kosher or sea salt, to taste
  • Fresh ground black pepper, to taste
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup rye flour
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmigiano-Reggiano
  • Oil, for frying
  • 2 cups tomato sauce, heated
  • 1 cup grated mozzarella cheese

How to make this recipe

  1. Rinse and pat dry the chicken. Cut the chicken breasts into 1/2-inch-thick pieces. Season with salt and pepper and set aside.
  2. In large bowl, beat eggs and set aside. In another large bowl, mix together the rye flour and Parmigiano-Reggiano.
  3. Coat the chicken in egg, and then dredge it in the flour-cheese mixture. Shake off any excess and set the coated pieces aside. Repeat with the remaining chicken.
  4. Heat 1/4 inch of oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and cook for 5 to 7 minutes, turning once until the chicken is golden and cooked through.
