Pecan Parmesan Chicken

This is an incredibly delicious meal. It is probably one of my top favorite down home country feel good meals ever! The chicken is so delicious, and not hard to make at all. The Cheesy Mashed Potatoes compliment the chicken perfectly. Make this meal for the ones you love and they will fall in love with you all over again. ;)

Pecan Parmesan Chicken

6 boneless chicken breasts
1/3 cup parmesan cheese
1 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp basil
2 egg whites
1 Tbsp vegetable oil
1/2 cup seasoned bread crumbs
1/3 cup pecans, chopped
1/2 tsp seasoned salt
1/4 tsp pepper
2 tsp cornstarch

Flatten chicken to 1/2 inch thickness. (I put my chicken in a freezer ziplock bag, and pound with a mallet)
In a shallow bowl, combine bread crumbs, cheese, pecans, and spices. Whisk egg whites and cornstarch until smooth. Dipe chicken into egg white mixture, then rollin crumb mixture.
Brown in skillet in oil for 3-5 minutes on each side. Transfer to an ungreased baking dish. Bake uncovered at 400 degrees or 10 minutes or until juices run clear.
