4
boneless skinless chicken breasts (1 lb)
1/2
cup Progresso™ panko crispy bread crumbs
1/4
cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2
teaspoon salt
1/4
teaspoon pepper
3
tablespoons olive or vegetable oil
3
large tomatoes, chopped (3 cups)
2
medium green onions, chopped (2 tablespoons)
1
clove garlic, finely chopped
1
tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1
tablespoon chopped fresh oregano leaves

  • 1 Between pieces of plastic wrap or waxed paper, place each chicken breast smooth side down; gently pound with flat side of meat mallet or rolling pin until about 1/4 inch thick.
  • 2 In shallow medium bowl or pie plate, mix bread crumbs, cheese, salt and pepper. Coat chicken with crumb mixture, pressing to coat well on both sides.
  • 3 In 12-inch nonstick skillet, heat 2 tablespoons of the oil over medium-high heat. Cook chicken in oil 6 to 10 minutes, turning once, until golden brown on outside and no longer pink in center. Remove chicken from skillet; cover to keep warm.
  • 4 To skillet, add remaining 1 tablespoon oil, 2 cups of the tomatoes, the onions and garlic; cook and stir 2 minutes. Stir in vinegar; cook 30 seconds longer. Remove from heat; stir in remaining 1 cup tomatoes and the oregano. Serve over chicken. Garnish with additional fresh oregano sprigs, if desired.

Expert Tips

Panko bread crumbs are coarser than regular bread crumbs. With a bit of pressing, the coating sticks to the chicken on its own, making this chicken very crunchy, yet light too.

If the chicken browns too quickly, simply turn down the heat a little bit.
