  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. Season the chicken breasts with salt and pepper.
  3. In separate shallow bowls, place the flour, beaten eggs, and breadcrumbs mixed with grated Parmesan cheese.
  4. Dredge each chicken breast in the flour, then dip it into the beaten eggs, and coat it with the breadcrumb mixture.
