4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves
1 egg, beaten
1⁄2 cup breadcrumbs
1⁄4 cup grated parmesan cheese
1⁄2 teaspoon dried oregano
1⁄2 teaspoon paprika
1⁄4 teaspoon garlic powder
1⁄4 teaspoon salt
1⁄8 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
1 cup tomato sauce
3⁄4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
4 hamburger buns
olive oil (for frying)
Add the breadcrumbs, Parmesan cheese, oregano, paprika, garlic powder, salt and pepper to a Ziplock bag and shake to mix well.
Pour into a low flat bowl or onto some waxed paper.
Drop each chicken breast into the beaten egg and dredge in the breadcrumb, Parmesan cheese and herb mixture.
Heat a few tablespoons of olive oil over medium high heat in a pan.
Add the breaded chicken breasts, two at a time so as not to over-crowd the pan.
Cook on medium high heat for about 3 minutes per side.
Remove breasts to a paper towel-lined plate and fry the other two chicken breasts.
Place the cooked chicken breasts on a baking dish and cover each breast with 1/4 cup tomato sauce.
Sprinkle shredded mozzarella cheese over each one.
Place in a 400-degree oven for 8 to 10 minutes or long enough to melt the cheese and get the tomato sauce nice and hot.
Add the hamburger buns to the oven when there is about 5 minutes left to get them nice and toasty and crusty.
Slice the buns, add the chicken Parmesan breast and top with tomato and lettuce, if desired.
