  • In large bowl, beat eggs and set aside. In another large bowl, mix together the rye flour and Parmigiano-Reggiano.

  • 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.

  • 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.

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