Using the “dry hand, wet hand” method, dip the chicken breasts into the flour then egg before covering every inch with panko breadcrumbs. For extra crispy, dip the chicken back into the egg and then back into the breadcrumbs.

5.

Set the breadcrumbs coated chicken aside until ready to fry.

6.

Heat a quart of peanut oil to 350°F, drop in the chicken and fry for roughly 5 minutes or deeply golden brown. Drain on paper towels once finished.

7.

Place the chicken onto a wire rack in a rimmed baking sheet and top with fresh basil, slices of fresh mozzarella, and freshly grated parmesan cheese. Place in the broiler for just a few minutes until the cheese is melted and slightly golden brown.
