Chicken Parmesan

Chicken Parmesan is a classic and flavorful dish that features breaded and baked chicken topped with marinara sauce and melted cheese. Here’s a recipe for delicious Chicken Parmesan:


For the Breaded Chicken:

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • 2 cups breadcrumbs (seasoned or plain)
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Olive oil for frying

For Assembly:

  • 2 cups marinara sauce (store-bought or homemade)
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil, chopped (optional)
  • Grated Parmesan for topping


  1. Preheat the Oven:
  • Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  1. Prepare the Chicken:
  • Season the chicken breasts with salt and pepper. Set up a breading station with three shallow dishes: one with flour, one with beaten eggs, and one with a mixture of breadcrumbs and grated Parmesan.
  • Dredge each chicken breast in the flour, dip it into the beaten eggs, and then coat it in the breadcrumb and Parmesan mixture, pressing the crumbs onto the chicken to adhere.
  1. Pan-Fry the Chicken:
  • Heat olive oil in a large oven-safe skillet over medium-high heat. Once the oil is hot, add the breaded chicken breasts and cook for 3-4 minutes per side, or until golden brown.
  1. Assemble the Chicken Parmesan:
  • Spoon marinara sauce over each chicken breast, spreading it evenly. Sprinkle shredded mozzarella cheese on top, covering the chicken.
  • Transfer the skillet to the preheated oven and bake for about 20 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through, and the cheese is melted and bubbly.
  1. Garnish and Serve:
  • Remove the Chicken Parmesan from the oven. Garnish with fresh basil and grated Parmesan.
  1. Serve:
  • Serve the Chicken Parmesan over cooked pasta or with a side of crusty bread. Enjoy the delicious combination of crispy chicken, flavorful marinara sauce, and gooey melted cheese!
