Pinterest Challenge - Chicken Cutlets with a Basil/Parsley Pesto

A simple dinner idea that was "simply delicious"!

All you need to do
Whisk together:
3 tablespoons flour
1 cup Panko (or Italian bread crumbs)
1/2 cup grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese
1/2 teaspoon thyme
salt/pepper to taste

Beat with a fork:
2 eggs

Dip chicken cutlets into eggs and coat with flour mixture.
Heat a large fry pan with a thin layer of oil.
Cook cutlets until brown on both sides.  You may need to make two batches ~ do not crowd.

In a food processor or blender add 1 cup loosely packed basil leaves, 1/2 cup loosely packed parsley leaves, 1/2 lemon juiced, salt/pepper.  Stream in the oil until a loose paste forms.

Plate the chicken, and top with the pesto.

Add Italian bread and rice for a perfect little meal!

Enjoy!  ♥
