  • 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. Season chicken with 1/4 teaspoon of the salt and 1/4 teaspoon of the pepper.
  • 2
    In shallow pan, stir together flour, remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Coat both sides of chicken with flour mixture. Beat eggs in shallow bowl with whisk to blend. Place bread crumbs in another shallow bowl. Dip chicken into beaten eggs; turn to coat. Dredge in bread crumbs, coating completely.
  • 3
    In 12-inch nonstick skillet, heat 2 tablespoons of the oil over medium heat. Add chicken; cook 6 to 8 minutes, turning once, to at least 165°F. Transfer chicken to serving plates.

    Meanwhile, in small bowl, stir remaining oil and the lemon juice. In medium bowl, toss arugula and tomatoes with oil mixture.

    Serve salad with chicken and lemon wedges on the side.

Expert Tips

  • Arugula is a variety of lettuce with a peppery flavor. Mixed baby lettuce would work well in this recipe as a substitute.
  • Pounding the chicken out gives it a uniform thickness which helps the chicken cook evenly.
