Robyn Robinson


2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, halved and pounded to 1/2-inch thick
1/2 cup shredded whole milk Mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup Provolone cheese, shredded
1 large egg
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
3/4 cup Panko bread crumbs
1/3 cup finely Romano cheese, shredded
1 tablespoon minced fresh oregano, plus 1 more teaspoon for garnish
2 teaspoon lemon zest
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1/3 cup olive oil
4 lemon wedges for spritzing each serving
2 teaspoons finely chopped green onion, for garnish

Step 1
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place chicken cutlets on a cutting board and season all sides with salt.

Step 2
In a shallow dish or mixing bowl, mix flour and egg until well combined. In a separate mixing bowl or dish, combine bread crumbs, Romano cheese, oregano, lemon zest, garlic powder, and 3/4 teaspoon pepper.

Step 3
Build an assembly line: submerge one chicken cutlet at a time in egg mixture then immediately coat both sides in bread crumb mixture. Press firmly to ensure the coating sticks to the chicken. Repeat with remaining chicken pieces.

Step 4
Heat olive oil into a 10-inch non-stick skillet and heat over medium-high heat. Once the oil is hot, fry two cutlets at a time until the bottom is nice and golden brown (about 2 minutes). Fip the chicken over to fry the other side.

Step 5
Spray a baking dish with non-stick cooking spray or line with parchment paper/aluminum foil. Add fried chicken.

Step 6
Top the chicken with mozzarella and provolone cheese. Place the baking dish in the oven and bake for 8-10 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees F. Once cooked, sprinkle the chicken with a bit of green onion.
