    2 extra large eggs

Pound the chicken breasts until they are 1/4 inch thick. you can use either a meat mallet or a rolling pin. Place chicken inbetween two pieces of wax paper or plastic wrap for best results.

Combine flour, salt, and pepper on a dinner plate. On a second plate beat the eggs with 1 tablesppon of water. On a third plate, combine the bread crumbs and 1/2 cup of the grated Parmesan cheese. Coat the chicken breasts on both sides with the flour mixture. Then dip both sides into the egg mixture and dredge both sides in the bread-crumb mixture, pressing lightly.
Heat 1 tablespoon of butter & 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a large saute pan and cook 2 or 3 chicken breasts on medium low heat for 2-3 minutes on each side, until cooked through. Add more butter & oil to cook the rest of the chicken breasts.
Serve with a salad with vinaigrette and grated parmesan cheese. Yum!
