4-6 chicken breasts, flattened to 1/2" thickness
1-1 1/2 cups bread crumbs (I use whole wheat)
1-1 1/2 cups parmesan cheese (finely grated crumb kind)
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. onion powder
1/2 tsp. oregano
1/2 tsp. marjoram
1/2 tsp. basil
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
1/2-3/4 cup flour
Fresh mozzarella cheese
Place flour in a shallow dish. Beat eggs in another shallow dish with a couple tablespoons of water. Combine bread crumbs, parmesan cheese, garlic powder, onion powder, oregano, marjoram, basil, salt, and pepper in another bowl.
Add enough oil to a large, deep pan to be about 1/4-1/2" deep. Heat over medium to medium-high.
Dip flattened chicken breasts in flour, then eggs (allow to drip excess), and then coat in bread crumb mixture. Carefully place coated chicken in hot oil just long enough to brown the outside (a minute or two). Chicken will not be cooked through!
Place chicken in a large oven-safe casserole dish coated with cooking spray. Top generously with marinara sauce and a good amount of fresh mozzarella cheese.
Bake at 375F for about 25 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through.
-These leftovers are great in chicken parmesan sandwiches!
