Mediterranean Chicken

Before my surgery I wanted to create a dish with some of my favorite ingredients - inspired by Mediterranean flavors.  Here are the ingredients:

4 chicken cutlets, pounded thin
1 cup Italian bread crumbs
Olive Oil
2 tablespoons butter
Salt and Pepper
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
2 lemons, juiced and zested
1 tomato, diced
1 pound mushrooms, sliced
1 clove garlic, diced
1 teaspoon basil
1 teaspoon oregano
1/2 cup Kalamata olives, pitted and halved
1/2 cup crumbled Feta cheese
1/2 cup chicken broth

Pound the chicken out thin.  Salt and pepper the chicken.  Coat in olive oil.  Combine the bread crumbs and Parmesan cheese.  Coat the chicken in bread crumbs.

In a sauce pan, melt 2 tablespoons butter and olive oil.  Brown each side of the chicken.  Remove from heat and keep warm.

Add mushrooms, and garlic.  Saute on medium heat 2-3 minutes.  Add the tomatoes, 1/2 cup chicken broth, lemon juice and zest.  Add basil and oregano, salt and pepper.  Saute another 2-3 minutes. 
Pour over the chicken.  Add olives and feta.
I served my Mediterranean chicken with couscous.  Enjoy!
