3/4 - 1 c. bread crumbs
1 - 2 eggs
1/8- 1/4 tsp each: salt, pepper

1/2 tsp dried parsley 
Pinch of paprika

In a shallow dish combine: eggs, salt, pepper, parsley and paprika.. Mix with fork.

Pour breadcrumbs in a separate dish.

Place chicken breasts between two pieces of plastic wrap and pound with a meat pounder until chicken is thin.

Dredge both sides of chicken in egg. Dredge both sides of chicken in bread crumbs. Repeat process with remaining chicken. 

Heat skillet to medium high heat, Lower heat to medium, add oil. Add chicken to pan and cook on 1 side for 5 - 7 min. Flip over and cook chicken on other side for 5 - 7 min or until done.
