  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 1 pound boneless and skinless chicken breasts, butterflied and pounded thin
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/4 cup pecorino romano, grated
  • 1 tablespoon butter

  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 tablespoons parsley, chopped
  1. Heat the oil in a pan over medium-high heat.

  3. Add the butter to the pan and heat, over medium heat, until it sizzles before adding the garlic and red pepper flakes and cooking until fragrant, about a minute.
