  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Beat egg in a shallow bowl. Spread bread crumbs in a separate shallow bowl. Dip chicken in egg, allowing excess to drip back into the bowl. Press the dipped chicken into the bread crumbs until evenly coated on all sides.
  3. Heat 2 tablespoons canola oil in a skillet over medium heat; cook chicken until no longer pink in the center, about 5 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).
  4. Heat remaining canola oil in a separate skillet over medium heat; cook and stir roasted red peppers until heated through, 3 to 5 minutes.
  5. Transfer chicken to a casserole dish and top with Asiago cheese and roasted red peppers.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven until cheese is melted, about 8 minutes.
