Step 1

Between pieces of plastic wrap or waxed paper, place each chicken breast smooth side down; gently pound with flat side of meat mallet or rolling pin until about 1/4 inch thick.
2 In small bowl, beat egg product and 2 tablespoons lemon juice with fork or wire whisk. In 1-gallon resealable food-storage plastic bag, mix Bisquick mix, paprika and sesame seed.
3 Dip chicken into egg mixture, then place in mixture in bag. Shake until chicken breasts are well coated.
4 In 12-inch nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add chicken; cook 6 to 8 minutes, turning once, until chicken is no longer pink in center.
