Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Put the corn flakes in a food processor or blender and pulse to grind the flakes into coarse crumbs. Mix with the Parmigiano-Reggiano in large bowl. In another large bowl, beat the eggs. Set aside.

  • Rinse the chicken and pat dry. Cut or pound the chicken breasts into 1/2-inch-thick pieces. Season with salt and pepper and set aside.

  • Coat the chicken in egg and then dredge it in the crumb/cheese mixture. Shake off any excess and set the coated chicken pieces aside. Repeat with the remaining chicken.

  • Heat 1/4 inch of oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. After the oil is hot, add the chicken. Cook for 5 to 7 minutes, turning once, until the chicken is golden and cooked through.

  • To serve, top the cooked chicken with hot tomato sauce, mozzarella cheese and garnish with parsley.
