Protein Puffs Chicken Parmesan

 

WHAT YOU WILL NEED:

INSTRUCTIONS: Get out a cast iron skillet and set your oven to 350 degrees F. Butterfly your chicken breast and place plastic wrap over it and pound it around 1/2 in thick. Heat cast iron pan over medium heat with enough oil to pan fry chicken. (If you want a healthier chicken, set finished chicken on a baking sheet and bake to 160 degrees F. Rest time will carry residual heat over 165F. After the chicken has been pounded out, season it well then dip it in the egg, then dredge in the Margherita Pizza Protein Puff crumbs. Once skillet and oil is around 350F, pan fry chicken on both sides around 1-2 minutes to get some nice color and texture. Then place the pan in the oven around 10 minutes. While the chicken is baking, mix together crushed tomatoes and pesto. After ten minutes, remove pan from oven and cover with tomato mixture and mozzarella cheese. Return to the oven and turn it to high broil to get the cheese melted quickly. Enjoy!
