For Chicken:
2 lbs chicken cutlets (or thin-cut chicken breasts)
salt
pepper
3-4 tbsp all purpose flour
1 cup Italian bread crumbs
1/3-1/4 cup grated Parmigiano cheese
1 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
1 clove garlic
1 (3oz) jar pine nuts

For Basil-Parsley Sauce:
1 cup loosely packed basil leaves

Directions:
Directions:
Season the chicken cutlets on both sides with salt and pepper and turn both sides lightly in flour.
Combine next 7 ingredients in food processor and pulse to chop the spices, garlic, and nuts to evenly distribute the flavors throughout the crumbs and cheese. Transfer the mixture to a place. Beat eggs in a shallow dish separately.
Heat a thin layer of oil in a large skillet, over a medium to medium high heat. Coat the cutlets in eggs and then in breading and add to the hot oil. Cook cutlets about 3 or 4 minutes on each side, just until breading is evenly browned and juices are clear.
Return to the food processor and add basil, parsley, and lemon juice, with salt & pepper. Turn processor on and stream oil in until a loose paste forms.
Serve chicken with sauce and chopped tomato.
