1. Make your favorite tomato sauce. This photo shows my own homemade sauce. Easy and Rich Tomato Sauce: Recipe ID: 2105422
2. Cut the chicken breast diagonally into 10 pieces as big as you like, but about 1 cm thick, and line them up on a cutting board.
3. Pound the pieces with a knife to tenderize and flatten them slightly. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
4. Heat up a pan big enough to hold all of the chicken (mine is 26 cm) and add 2 tablespoons of olive oil to the pan.
5. Coat each piece of chicken evenly with flour.
6. Fry the chicken in the pan.
7. Turn the chicken over when it's lightly browned. If you cook it too long, they'll turn tough.
8. Prepare 1 cup of tomato sauce.
9. When the chicken is lightly browned on both sides, pour in the tomato sauce.
10. Turn each piece of chicken over to coat it with sauce. Tongs work well for this job.
11. When the chicken is evenly coated with sauce like this, it's ready.
12. It looks particularly appetizing, served on a white plate.
13. It's tasty when garnished with herbs like basil or parsley, or sprinkled with grated cheese.
14. When serving guests, placing the grated cheese in individual portions on the side makes it look a bit fancy.
