Chicken Parmesan -- new recipe review

A lot of people in our church bring their lunches and stay to eat and fellowship after the meeting. The last time we were able to join them, a friend brought a humongous plate of incredible chicken Parmesan. My husband was jealous (we had only brought leftover's from the previous night's dinner :) and immediately asked if I would make some very soon! So I looked at a bunch of recipes online and tried my own version. We all really enjoyed it, especially the girls. I was planning to serve leftovers the next night, but we didn't have any!

1 Tbs. butter, coconut oil, or olive oil
4 big chicken breasts
2 eggs
1 cup bread crumbs ( I just crumbled some day old bread that I had made)
2/3 cup Parmesan cheese
2 tsp Italian seasoning mix
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
Mozzarella cheese
Marinara Sauce
angel hair pasta or spaghetti squash

Directions: Melt olive oil, butter, or coconut oil in a sauce pan on med. heat. In a bowl, combine salt, pepper, and flour. Beat the 2 eggs in a different bowl. In a third bowl, combine Parmesan, bread crumbs, and Italian seasoning. Dip chicken in each bowl, coating thoroughly. Fry in a pan until a nice, crunchy coating has formed. Place chicken breasts in a buttered dish. Cover with marinara sauce and top with mozzarella cheese. Bake at 350 for 20-30 minutes, until chicken is thoroughly cooked. Serve over pasta or spaghetti squash.
