- ¼ teaspoon black pepper
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon dried basil
- 1 teaspoon dried thyme

- 2 tablespoons red onion, chopped
- 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
- Salt and black pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Then, using a meat tenderizer, pound the chicken breasts to an even ½ inch thickness to ensure even cooking.
Afterwards, combine and mix the flour, salt, black pepper, garlic powder, dried basil, dried thyme, and dried oregano in a shallow bowl or plate. In another bowl, beat the egg. And in a third bowl or plate, place the shredded Parmesan cheese.
Next coat chicken in flour mixture, then dip in the egg, followed by rolling both sides of the chicken with the shredded Parmesan cheese.
In a large skillet coated with the olive oil at medium-high heat, brown the chicken on both sides, approximated 1-2 minutes per side. Transfer the chicken from the skillet to a baking pan coated with cooking spray. Drizzle fresh lemon juice on top of each chicken breast, then bake uncovered in oven for up to 20 minutes, or until juices run clear.
