Make a breading station with 3 bowls. In one bowl mix together breadcrumbs with cheese, and all seasonings, in a 2nd bowl add the beaten eggs, the last bowl should have the flour with a sprinkle of salt and pepper.

First, put the chicken in the flour mixture, then the egg mixture, and then the breadcrumbs. Covering completely. Set aside on a plate. Continue with the remaining chicken.

Heat a large saute pan on high heat. Add in the oil and let heat up completely. To check if oil is hot add the end of a wooden spoon and make sure it starts to bubble. Preheat oven to 300.

Once heated completely, add a few chicken pieces at a time to the pan, maybe 3 depending on the size of the pan. Do not overcrowd the pan. (Note you may need to add more oil to the pan after cooking some pieces.

Cook chicken for 2-4 minutes on one side and then flip and cook another 2-3 minutes. The cooking time will vary based on the thickness of the chicken breast and the temperature of the oil.

Once cooked, drain the chicken cutlet on a paper towel to remove all the excess grease. Then place on a cookie sheet and put in the oven to keep it warm. Continue with the remaining chicken breast.

Serve the chicken cutlet with pasta, a salad, veggies or a nice carb. Enjoy!
