Ingrédients
  

  • 4 4 ounce boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 ½ cups butter and garlic croutons
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 large eggs beaten
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 8 tablespoons giardiniera
  • 4 slices provolone cheese
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  • Pound chicken breasts with a meat mallet to an even 1/4-inch to 1/2-inch thickness. Season with salt and pepper on both sides.
  • Pulse croutons in a food processor until finely crushed. Place crouton crumbs, flour, and beaten eggs into 3 separate shallow dishes.
