Chicken Parmesan...Sarge Style

I found this recipe while watching Barefoot Contessa on the Food Network one day and thought it looked yummy!  Only problem was that I didn't have all the ingredients on hand so I improvised!  I always have plenty of chicken, pasta and spaghetti sauce on hand!  So here you have it...Chicken Parmesan:

Chicken Parmesan

4-6 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 cup flour
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
2 eggs
1 1/4 cup Italian style dry bread crumbs
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
olive oil

Place the chicken breast between saran wrap or wax paper and pound until about 1/4" thick. 
Combine the flour, salt, and pepper on a plate.  On another plate combine the bread crumbs and Parmesan cheese.  Beat the 2 eggs together and leave in the bowl. 
Coat the chicken on both sides with the flour mixture then dip both sides into the egg mixture....then head over to the breadcrumbs and dredge both sides through that.
Heat 1 Tbsp of butter and 1 Tbsp of olive oil in  a large saute pan and cook chicken breasts on medium low heat for about 3 minutes per side or until cooked through (make sure your pan is hot before placing the chicken in there).  Add more oil and butter before cooking the other pieces of chicken.

I serve this over Linguine noodles and heated marinara sauce with some Parmesan cheese sprinkled on top.
Hope you all enjoy...leave a comment below and tell me whether you liked it or not!
