This Chicken Parmesan is pretty darn amazing. Juicy, tender chicken breaded in a mixture of parmesan cheese and panko breadcrumbs. Pan fried until golden brown and topped with melted mozzarella cheese and marinara.
This Chicken Parmesan is one of my all time favorite meals.
2 boneless skinless chicken breasts 1 pound
1/4 cup all purpose flour
3/4 cup panko breadcrumbs
1/2 cup parmesan cheese grated
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 cup tomato sauce
1/2 cup mozzarella cheese shredded
basil for serving if desired
Cut chicken in half horizontally. Pound each piece until 1/2 inch thick. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Add flour to a shallow dish.
Add egg to a shallow bowl and whisk, set aside.
Add breadcrumbs and Parmesan cheese to a shallow bowl and mix to combine.
Starting with the flour and ending with breadcrumbs, dip the chicken into the flour, egg and Parmesan breadcrumbs.
Add oil to a large skillet.
Add chicken two at a time to the skillet. Cook 2-3 minutes on each side or until golden grown and cooked all the way through.
Place chicken in a pan or sheet tray and top with mozzarella cheese.
Broil on high until melted and bubbly. Top with tomato sauce and a sprinkle of basil for serving, if desired. Serve immediately.
