Flatten the chicken breasts lightly with a meat mallet.

If cooking to order, select a sauté pan just large enough to hold in a single layer the number of portions being cooked. If cooking all the chicken breasts at once, use a very large skillet or enough sauté pans to hold all the breasts in a single layer.

Place the pan (or pans) over moderate heat and add enough clarified butter to just cover the bottom. Dip the chicken breasts in the flour and shake off excess. Dip in the cheese batter, turning the pieces to coat both sides.

Cook over moderate heat until the bottom is golden. Turn the pieces over. Reduce the heat to low and continue to cook until the chicken is cooked through. It should feel somewhat firm when done.

Alternative Method: As soon as the first side is browned, turn the pieces over, cover the pans, and place in an oven at 350°F (175°C) for 8-10 minutes. This procedure requires less attention from the cook, an advantage in busy kitchens.
