Steps

  • 1 Place 1 chicken breast half between 2 pieces of plastic wrap or waxed paper. Working from center, gently pound chicken with flat side of meat mallet or rolling pin until about 1/4 inch thick; remove wrap. Repeat with remaining chicken breast halves.
  • 2 In small shallow bowl, combine bread crumbs and garlic salt. Coat both sides of chicken breast halves with flour. Dip each in egg; coat both sides with crumb mixture.
  • 3 Heat oil in large skillet over medium-high heat until hot. Add chicken; cook 6 to 8 minutes on each side or until lightly browned and juices run clear.
  • 4 Meanwhile, place French rolls, cut side up, on ungreased cookie sheet. Broil 4 to 6 inches from heat for 1 to 2 minutes or until toasted; remove top halves of rolls from cookie sheet. Spread bottom halves of rolls with mayonnaise; top with lettuce, tomato, chicken and cheese. Broil 4 to 6 inches from heat for 1 minute or until cheese is melted; cover with top halves of rolls.
