Rec: Golden Chicken Breasts with Coleslaw

4 boneless skinless chicken breasts (7 oz. each)
1 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1 1/2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 whole beaten egg
1 cup Panko (fine bread/cracker crumbs)
1/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
2 teaspoons parsley, finely chopped
4 teaspoons grated Parmesan cheese

Coleslaw

2 cups shredded cabbage
1/4 cup thinly sliced onion
1/4 cup shredded carrots
2 tablespoons vinegar
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper

Garnish

1 teaspoon parsley, chopped
1/4 cup parsley cut into 1 inch lengths




Salt and pepper chicken breasts and coat with flour. Dip
them in the egg and then the Panko or fine breadcrumbs.
Place parchment paper or wax paper (coated side up) on
a microwave-safe plate (12 inches in diameter). Place the
chicken breasts on it and sprinkle with mozzarella and
Parmesan cheese. Place a microwave bacon rack in the
microwave oven. Cover the chicken plate with a vented
microwave lid and center it on the bacon rack. (Turning
over the chicken is unnecessary, because placing bacon
rack allows the microwaves to cook from the bottom.)
Cook on HIGH (1200W) for 8 minutes or until chicken
breasts are tender. Take the chicken breasts out and
place them on a baking sheet. Cook them in a toaster
oven until the surface turns golden brown. To make the
Coleslaw, combine vinegar, olive oil, salt and pepper in
a bowl. Stir until the salt dissolves. Add the coleslaw
vegetables and mix well. Sprinkle finely chopped
parsley on the chicken and garnish with parsleys
sprigs. Add coleslaw on the side and serve.
