Recipe

The crumb crust seals in the juices, keeping the meat succulent.

Yield: 4 servings
Prep time: 20 Mins
Cooking time: 20–30 Mins

Ingredients

For the Green Herb Sauce:

  • 1 large egg
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 2 tbsp white wine vinegar
  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1¼ cups vegetable oil
  • 2 tbsp chopped basil, dill, parsley, or chives

For the chicken:

  • 4 boneless and skinless chicken breasts
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • ½ cup all purpose flour
  • 2½ cups fresh bread crumbs
  • 1 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tbsp chopped thyme
  • 2 tbsp chopped parsley
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil

Directions

1. For the sauce, combine the egg, yolks, vinegar, and mustard in a blender. With the machine running, gradually add the oil to make a thick and creamy mayonnaise. Season with salt and pepper. Transfer to a bowl and stir in the basil.

2. Lightly pound the chicken breasts to an even thickness and season with salt and pepper. Spread the flour in a shallow dish. Mix the bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, thyme, and parsley in a shallow bowl. Beat the eggs in another bowl. Coat the chicken in the flour, shaking off the excess. Dip in the eggs, then coat with the breadcrumb mixture.

3. Heat the olive and vegetable oils in a large frying pan over medium-high heat until shimmering. Add the chicken and cook, turning once, until golden brown, about 10 minutes. Transfer to paper towels to drain briefly. Serve hot with the sauce passed on the side.
