Tools you will need:

  • A cutting board with a wet towel under it
  • Sharp chefs’ knife
  • 2 frying pans
  • Digital thermometer
  • 3 bowls for the breading
  • Box grater or cheese slicer
  • 1 cooling rack on top of a jellyroll pan
  • Bowls to put all your ingredients in
  • 4 dinner plates
  • Ladle for sauce
  • 2 tongs for meat
  • 2 tasting spoons


  • 4 pieces of chicken breast, sliced in half horizontally
  • ½ cup flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups bread crumbs, cracker crumbs or panko
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 cloves of sliced garlic
  • OPTIONAL: ½ teaspoon Chilli pepper
  • Large can of diced tomatoes
  • 1 teaspoon dried or 1 tablespoon fresh (Dried or fresh basil and/or oregano)
  • 4 slices of mozzarella cheese
  • 2 tablespoon Parmesan cheese
  • Vegetable oil for frying
    • *Available from Well Seasoned


  1. Set up 3 bowls, flour in one, egg in another & bread crumbs in the last, season all with salt & pepper. Take chicken and dip into flour first, then egg, then bread crumbs, set aside. In a pot place add about 2 inches of oil and heat it to 350-375 on medium.
  2. Place one piece of chicken in at a time & fry until golden brown, drain on a cooling rack. To make sauce in another frying pan, add cold oil and garlic and heat together until fragrant. If using dried spices, add them into the oil along with the chillies if you like it a bit spicy. Next, add in tomatoes and simmer until thick, about 10 minutes
  3. Season with salt, pepper and fresh basil and/or oregano. Two ways to finish the dish #1 place the chicken in the sauce & sprinkle with both cheeses & place a lid on top & let the heat from the sauce melt the cheese #2 place sauce in a small dish, place chicken on the top, top with cheese, heat in the oven. Both taste great!
