Total Time:

30 min.


  • 2 (10 oz.) boneless skinless chicken breast halves, halved horizontally
  • ⅓ cup light mayonnaise
  • ⅓ cup chopped fresh basil
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • ⅛ tsp. pepper
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • ¾ cup plain dry breadcrumbs
  • 2 Tbs. olive oil
  • 8 slices sourdough bread, 8 oz.
  • 2 tomatoes, sliced
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella, 4 oz.


  1. Between 2 sheets plastic wrap, using meat mallet or rolling pin, pound chicken to about ⅓” thick. In bowl, stir together mayonnaise and basil; reserve. Place eggs and breadcrumbs in separate bowls.
  2. Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper. Working with 1 cutlet at a time, dip in egg letting excess drip off, then coat in breadcrumbs. In 12” nonstick skillet, heat 1 Tbs. oil over medium-low heat. Add 2 cutlets; cook, flipping once, until golden and chicken is cooked through, 3-4 min. per side. Transfer to plate; repeat with remaining oil and chicken. Wipe skillet clean.
  3. Spread one side of each slice of bread with mayonnaise mixture. Top 4 slices of bread, mayonnaise side up, with tomatoes, chicken and cheese. Top with remaining bread, mayonnaise side down.
  4. Coat same skillet with cooking spray; heat over medium-low heat. In batches, add sandwiches and cook, flipping once, until lightly browned and cheese is melted, about 3 min. per side.
