You're at a bar and some horribly cheesy guy starts talking to you. Studded jeans, Tattoo-inspired club shirt. Total Cheese.
Who said CHEESY has to be a bad thing?
This following dish will totally change your whole outlook.
This breaded chicken isn't literally breaded. (I need to lose all the carbohydrates I can find!)
- 1lb chicken cutlets (thinly sliced or pounded)
- 1.5 cups of Parmesan cheese (grated)
- dried basil
- salt and pepper
- olive oil
In a shallow dish, mix the Parmesan with a dash of salt, pepper and basil. Press each piece of chicken into the cheese mix, creating a nice crust.
Heat your pan on medium and spray with some olive oil. Make sure the oil gets warm before you begin cooking your chicken.
Place each piece of chicken into your pan and cook, about 2-3 minutes each side, flipping after it creates a nice light brown crust.
Plate and enjoy!
