Flipped Crispy Italian-style Chicken Breast

Are you ready for easy-to-make, crispy Italian chicken?  Along with Flipped Italian-style Breadcrumbs, it only requires two ingredients.  Don't forget, real Parmesan cheese and fresh basil are included in the breadcrumbs...Mamma Mia!

We had this for dinner yesterday evening and my youngest (our picky one) asked,"when are you going to make these again, Mom?"  I knew I had a winner.  Especially after he went back for seconds!

There's so many times I'll glance at a recipe and think, "that looks good," and never do another thing with it.  Do you find yourself doing this?  I built Flip2Tasty wanting low points (I'm watching my weight), easy to prepare recipes (work and school have started), and healthy substitute ingredients...without compromising flavor.

Take a look at the recipe.  I hope this becomes one of your family favorites...enjoy!

  • 2 whole skinless chicken breast, cut in half (approximately 4.2 oz each)
  • 1/2 cup egg, beaten (I use store brand or Egg Beaters brand)
  • 1 cup Flipped Italian-style Breadcrumbs, divided into four 1/4 cup portions

  1. Lay each slice of chicken breast between wax paper.  Using the flat side of a meat mallet, gently pound the chicken until approximately 1/4" thick. (The bottom of a fry pan will do the trick, too)
  2. Dip chicken breast in egg, coating both sides.
  3. Using 1/4 cup portion of breadcrumbs, coat both sides of the chicken breast.
  4. Repeat step 1-3 for the remainder of chicken.
  5. Heat skillet to medium-low.  Spray skillet with cooking spray.
  6. Immediately, place chicken in skillet and cook until golden brown on on one side.
  7. Before turning, lightly spray chicken with cooking spray.  Continue cooking until golden brown.
Red Sauce option:  I use 1/2 cup of  "Prego Italian Light Smart" per chicken breast. (Excellent tasting & just 1 point!)
