  9. Place all the chicken breasts filets on a dinner plate.
  10. Using two square plastic bowls, one with 4 beaten eggs, the other with the mixture of bread crumbs, flour, grated cheese, and seasonings.
  11. Dip each filet in the crumbs first, then egg, then crumbs again (this gives it a nice thicker coating).
  12. Heat a skillet with a 1/4 cup of olive oil. Place it in the hot oil. Lower the heat if it starts to spatter. You want golden brown, no darker. Do this until all the chicken is partly cooked.

Drain. Pour pasta sauce over chicken; turn breast pieces over to coat both sides with sauce.

Easy to do and tasty! Brown chicken patties until crispy in a 400 degree F oven in a 13x9 inch pan- about 20 minutes or so.
