  5. Season chicken breasts lightly with salt and pepper then one at a time dredge in the flour, 6. Then dip the chicken into the eggs, and then into the tortilla crumbs
  6. Place chicken on a platter than refrigerate for a minimum of 15 minutes (this will ensure the coating doesn't fall off during the cooking process.)
