It’s the breadcrumbs and butter that make this melt in your mouth Nona’s Italian chicken. I make my breadcrumbs in bulk and keep in the freezer, so that makes this dish super easy to make.

In some versions, the sliced filling is first dipped in beaten eggs and dredged in flour or breadcrumbs before frying. Some recipes use hard grated cheeses such as Parmigiano, while others use softer melting cheeses like mozzarella, or a combination of these.
