Apple Slaw:


With knife parallel to cutting board, halve each chicken breast to form 2 thin cutlets (4 total). Between waxed paper, pound chicken to 1/2-inch (1 cm) thickness. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.

In shallow bowl, mix panko with lemon zest; set aside. Stir together tarragon, mustard and lemon juice; spread over chicken. Press all sides of chicken firmly into panko mixture to adhere.

In nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat; working in batches, cook chicken, turning once, until golden, crispy and no longer pink inside, about 6 minutes.

Apple Slaw: Meanwhile, in bowl, whisk together oil, lemon juice, honey, salt and pepper; stir in coleslaw mix and apple. Serve with chicken.
