Place the chicken breasts on a large sheet of wax paper. Season liberally with salt and pepper then place a second piece of wax paper on top. Pound and flatten the breasts with a rolling pin or mallet until they are about a 1/2 -inch thick.
Combine the polenta, Parmesan, seasoning granules if using, paprika and garlic powder in a large ziploc bag. Add one chicken breast at a time, seal the bag and shake to coat. Repeat with the remaining chicken breast.
Heat 1 tablespoon of oil over medium heat in a large skillet. Place the chicken breasts into the heated pan, turning after 4 minutes, until golden and cooked through. Allow to rest for 5 minutes before slicing.
