Ingredients

  • 6 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 1 tbsp. minced parsley
  • 1 tsp. lemon juice
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups dry bread crumbs
  • 2 large eggs

Directions

  • Step 1

    POUND chicken breasts to 3/8-inch thickness. Sprinkle with salt.

  • Step 2
