2 thin chicken breasts, boneless and skinless

1 cup flour

2 eggs

1 cup panko crumbs

1 roma tomato, diced

1/2 jalapeño, diced

2 tbsp chopped onion

2 tbsp lime juice

1 tsp parsley

salt and pepper

preheat oven to 350 degrees.  line a baking dish with foil so chicken will not stick.  prepare 3 separate bowls: 1 with flour, 1 with the 2 eggs, lightly beaten, and 1 with the panko bread crumbs.  take each chicken breast and coat in flour and then in egg mixture.  repeat these 2 steps then after the second egg dipping, coat in panko bread crumbs and place in lined baking sheet.  bake in oven for 20 minutes.
