Ingredients

For The Chicken
  • 2 large chicken breasts
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 4 eggs beaten with a splash of milk - milk optional
  • 2 cups of panko bread crumbs
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil for frying
For the Salad
  • 8 cups baby arugula
  • 8 oz mozzarella balls - cut in half
  • 1 cup of cherry tomatoes
For the Dressing
  • 1 Tablespoon Lemon Juice
  • 2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
  • Salt and Pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Slice the large chicken breasts in half to make 4 thin chicken breasts
  • Pound the chicken breasts gently so they are all thin and similar thickness then pat dry with paper towels
  • Prepare a breading station with flour in one bowl, whipped eggs and milk in a second, and the panko in a third. Season all three with salt and pepper to taste. 
  • For each chicken breast coat them in flour, then egg wash, then into the panko and onto a baking sheet or large plate.
  • After all chicken breasts are dressed with their coating, place them in the fridge for 10 minutes to allow the crust to dry out.
  • While the chicken is in the fridge, prepare the salad dressing. In a small bowl whisk together the olive oil, lemon juice, and salt and pepper to taste.
  • In a skillet, pour vegetable oil in only enough to thinly coat the bottom and turn it on medium-high heat.
  • Cook each chicken breast in the hot oil for 2-3 minutes on each side until beautifully golden brown
  • After the chicken is done cooking, add in the cherry tomatoes into the skillet enough for them to cook and slightly burst. Then set aside to cool.
  • Then, toss the cooked tomatoes, mozzarella, and salad dressing with the baby arugula.
  • Finally, serve and enjoy!
