Ingredients

  • 2 pounds thin sliced (¼-inch thick) boneless skinless  chicken breasts
  • salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste
  • ¾ cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup Italian style breadcrumbs
  • ½ cup shredded Parmesan divided
  • 9 ounces fresh mozzarella thinly sliced
  • 3 large eggs
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil or as needed
  • 2 zucchini
  • 10 ounces red cherry tomatoes
  • 10 ounces yellow cherry tomatoes
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 lemon
  • 1 tablespoons chopped fresh basil

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with foil and spray the foil with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Season the chicken breasts on both sides with salt and pepper to taste. Set aside.
  • Place flour, egg, and breadcrumbs in separate shallow dishes (pie plates work well).  Lightly whisk the eggs. Dredge both sides of chicken in flour; dip in egg, and then dredge in breadcrumbs.
  • Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a large skillet over MEDIUM-HIGH¼. Add half of the breaded chicken, cook 2 minutes on each side, or until nicely browned. Transfer browned chicken to the prepared baking sheet. Repeat this process with remaining chicken, adding oil to the skillet if needed.
  • Top browned chicken with a slice of fresh mozzarella cheese and transfer baking sheet to the oven for 7 to 10 minutes or until chicken is cooked through and cheese has melted.
  • Meanwhile, add 1 tablespoon olive oil to clean skillet and add zucchini. Sauté for about 1 minute, or just until slightly fork tender. Add tomatoes and garlic. Season with salt and sauté for 3 or 4 minutes, until tomatoes have softened and zucchini is tender. Squeeze fresh lemon juice over the cooked vegetables and toss to combine.
  • Spoon the vegetables over the chicken, sprinkle with additional Parmesan cheese and top with fresh basil.

Notes

If your chicken is not thin-sliced either slice it all the way through the middle to create two thin slices or place it in a plastic storage bag or between pieces of plastic wrap and pound it to ¼-inch thickness with a mallet.
