Here are the ingredients: 

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts

  • Salt and pepper, to taste

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour

  • 2 large eggs, beaten

  • 1 cup breadcrumbs

  • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese, divided

  • 2 cups marinara sauce

  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • Fresh basil leaves for garnish



1. Before you start, make sure to preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C).

2. Take each chicken breast. Place it between two sheets of plastic wrap. Gently pound them until they are evenly flattened. Use a meat mallet or a rolling pin to pound them until they're evenly thick. Season both sides of the chicken with salt and pepper.

3. Coat each chicken breast with flour, making sure to shake off any extra. Dip the chicken into the beaten eggs. letting excess egg drip off. Lastly coat the chicken with the breadcrumb mix and press gently to help it stick.

4. Heat the olive oil in an oven proof skillet, over medium-high heat. Place the coated chicken breasts in the skillet. Cook them until they turn a nice golden brown on each side, which should take around 3-4 minutes, per side.

5. Drizzle the marinara sauce over the chicken breasts. Then sprinkle the rest of the Parmesan cheese on top, adding a little bit of mozzarella cheese on each chicken breast. 

6. Place the skillet in the pre-heated oven and bake for about 15-20 minutes until the chicken is fully cooked through and the cheese is melted and bubbling. 

7. Take it out of the oven. Allow it to sit for a couple of minutes. Add some basil leaves, if desired, as a garnishing touch before you serve it.

Additional Cooking Tips

For a crispier crust consider trying panko breadcrumbs instead of the regular breadcrumbs. Panko breadcrumbs have a coarser texture, giving you a lighter and crunchier outer layer.

Pair your Chicken Parmesan with spaghetti or any pasta of your choice for a complete meal combination. The blend of tender chicken, flavorful marinara sauce and gooey melted cheese makes for a very enjoyable meal.

If desired, sprinkle some red pepper flakes to add a touch of spiciness. The fiery kick from the pepper flakes complements the flavors of the dish, enhancing the overall meal experience with every bite.
