1/4 teaspoon pepper
4 -- skinless, boneless chicken breasts
1/4 cup flour
1 cup tortilla chip crumbs
1 large egg white, beaten with 1 tablespoon water

  1. In medium saucepan, sauté bacon over medium-low heat until just crisp.  Add onion; cook until light browned, about 7 minutes.  Stir in tomatoes and green chilies; cook for 3 minutes more.  Sprinkle salt and pepper into dish; stir.  Remove from heat, cover and set aside.
  2. Between two sheets of plastic wrap, place chicken breasts.  Pound with meat hammer to 1/4 inch thickness.
  3. Place four in pie plate or other flat dish.  Place egg white in shallow bowl.  Place tortilla chip crumbs in third bowl.  Dip each chicken breast first into flour, patting off excess, then into egg.  Finish by coating with crumbs.

  5. To serve, place chicken on platter.  Warm relish and spoon on top of chicken.
