Chicken Parmesan with Tomato-Basil Salad

I made this delicious recipe yesterday and it was absolutely yummy!  I loved the chicken with the tomato basil dressing.  I will definitely make this again.  And you can’t beat the calorie count! =)



    1 pound (16 oz) boneless, skinless chicken breasts
    1/4 c all purpose flour
    2 egg whites, beaten
    3 oz parmesan cheese, grated
    1 tsp Fines Herbes, dried (mixture of dried chives, parsley and tarragon)
    3 plum tomatoes, de-seeded and chopped
    2 tsp basil, shredded
    2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
    1 lemon, juiced
    1 dash black pepper
    4 cups mixed greens


Trim any visible fat from the chicken breasts. Slice into four servings. Place chicken between two sheets of wax paper or plastic wrap. Pound with the bottom of a pan or rolling pin until the meat is 1/4 inch to 1/2 inch thick. Prepare a breading station by placing the flour in a flat dish, egg whites in a second dish and cheese in a third dish. Toss the dried herbs in with the cheese. Working with one piece of chicken at a time, dip the meat in each dish to coat. Place a non-stick skillet over moderate heat. Spray with nonstick cooking spray. Saute chicken until no longer pink (approximately 5-6 minutes per side). While chicken is cooking, combine the tomato and basil in a small bowl. In a separate bowl, combine the lemon juice and pepper. Slowly whisk in the oil. Pour the mixture over the tomatoes.
