This sweet cherry tomato sauce makes for the perfect accompaniment to this crunchy & succulent chicken.This one is sure to be a family favorite!


4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, trimmed of tenderloin

1 Tsp Salt

1 Tsp Fresh Ground Pepper

3 large eggs, beaten

2 cup Panko crumbs

1 cup Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese,grated

A small handful of flat-leaf parsley, finely chopped

Extra virgin olive oil, for shallow frying, plus 2 tablespoons

2 large cloves garlic, chopped

2 pints cherry tomatoes

2 handfuls of basil leaves


In a mixing bowl combine panko, grated parmigiano-reggiano cheese, and parsley.

Lightly pound chicken to tenderize, then season with salt and pepper. Individually dip each breast in eggs then transfer to the panko/parmigiano-reggiano/parsley mixture. Be sure to press down firmly on each side for mixture to fully coat the chicken.

Heat a shallow layer of oil, about 1/8-inch thick, in large skillet over medium to medium- high heat. Place cooling rack over sheet tray in oven preheated to 200˚F to keep chicken warm until you serve.

Cook chicken 5 minutes on each side until deep golden and cooked through.

Meanwhile, in a small pot with a tight fitting lid, heat olive oil, about 4 tablespoons, over medium heat. Add garlic and stir until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Add tomatoes, stir and place lid on pot. Raise heat a bit and cook, shaking pan occasionally, until tomatoes begin to burst, 6-8 minutes

Uncover pot and break up tomatoes with wooden spoon and season with salt and pepper, stir in basil.

Serve cutlets with tomato sauce on top, with a side of pasta and caprese salad (pictured).
