4-5 thinly sliced (or pounded) chicken breasts
1/2 cup flour
1 cup breadcrumbs
2 eggs, beaten
salt and pepper
dried oregano, to taste
garlic salt, to taste
olive oil, as needed
1 jar marinara sauce (or use homemade)
1 1/2 cups grated mozzarella
1/2 cup grated parmesan or pecorino romano
Season chicken breasts with salt and pepper. Prepare three shallow bowls or plates; one with flour, one with beaten eggs and one with bread crumbs. Season all three with salt, pepper, garlic salt and oregano.
Preheat oven to 350˚ F. Dredge chicken first in flour, then egg wash, then breadcrumbs. Heat a large skillet with about 1/2 inch of olive oil over medium heat and brown the chicken on both sides; about 5-6 mins per side
Transfer to a9 by 13 inch baking dish. Top with marinara sauce and cheeses and bake for about 20 minutes, or until cheese has melted and starts to brown.
