“I found this on the "Plain Chicken" food blog and it is described as a copycat recipe from Carrabba's. The original recipe included crab meat but this one does not. Serve this savory dish over pasta with crusty bread and crisp salad for a satisfying meal!”

  1. Whisk together the flour, salt, pepper, and grated Parmesan.
  2. Rinse the chicken pieces in water. Dredge them thoroughly in the flour mixture, until well coated.
  3. Heat olive oil and 2 tablespoons of the butter in a large skillet on medium high heat.
