Ingredients

4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts

1 cup breadcrumbs

1 cup grated Romano cheese

1/2 cup all-purpose flour

2 eggs

1 teaspoon dried oregano

1 teaspoon garlic powder

Salt and pepper to taste

Olive oil for frying

Lemon wedges for serving

Instructions

Preheat Oven

Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).

Prepare Chicken

Season chicken breasts with salt, pepper, dried oregano, and garlic powder.

Breading Station

Set up a breading station with three shallow bowls: one with flour, one with beaten eggs, and one with a mixture of breadcrumbs and grated Romano cheese.

Coat Chicken

Dredge each chicken breast in the flour, then dip into the beaten eggs, and finally coat with the breadcrumb-Romano mixture, pressing gently to adhere.

Pan-Fry

In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Pan-fry the breaded chicken breasts until golden brown on both sides.

Transfer to Oven

Transfer the partially cooked chicken breasts to a baking dish and finish baking in the preheated oven for about 20-25 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches 165°F (74°C).

Serve

Serve Crusted Chicken Romano hot, garnished with lemon wedges for a burst of freshness.
