Step 1

Add the breadcrumbs, garlic, parsley, Italian seasoning, and 3/4 cup cheese to a medium shallow bowl. Season with salt and pepper, then use your fingers to mix it together, working the garlic into the breadcrumbs until evenly distributed.

Step 2

In another medium, shallow bowl, whisk together 3 eggs with 1/2 cup cheese, a pinch of salt and pepper and 1 tablespoon water until combined.

Step 3

Pour the flour into another shallow bowl or plate, season with salt and pepper and mix to combine.

Step 4

Take one piece of thinly sliced chicken and place it on a cutting board. Place a piece of plastic wrap over top, then use a meat mallet to pound it out to be about 1/2 inch thick. Repeat with the remaining chicken.

Step 5

Season each piece of chicken on both sides with salt and pepper.

Step 6

Set up the breading station so that the chicken is on the far left, then next to it the flour, then the egg, then the breadcrumbs, and then a landing plate or pan to hold the breaded chicken.

Step 7

Take a piece of chicken and dip it into the flour to coat on all sides, then tap off the excess (*See note).

Step 8

Next, dip it in the egg mixture and let the excess drip off.

Step 9

Transfer the chicken into the breadcrumbs. Be sure to press it down and move it around so that it's thoroughly coated. Place the chicken on the reserved plate, and repeat with the remaining pieces.

Step 10

Heat a generous amount of olive oil in a large, heavy bottomed saute pan over medium-high heat. Place 1-3 chicken breasts in at a time, depending on how many your pan can hold. Don't overcrowd the pan.

Step 11

Cook until golden brown on each side, then remove to a rack or paper towels to drain.

Step 12

Serve immediately, or place in a 250 degree F oven for up to 1 hour before serving to keep warm.
