When a chicken breast is pounded and breaded, it fries quickly and is deliciously moist. In this recipe, the chicken is breaded with panko, Japanese bread crumbs that stay light and crunchy after frying.
The chicken is served with a fresh herb pesto, a variation on traditional basil pesto. It’s perfect for warmer weather.
If you have time, slice some ripe heirloom tomatoes along with a red onion for a side dish, and you have an easy dinner that tastes like summer.
