Chicken Parmesan

I make this Chicken Parmesan on evenings when I feel inspired to be in the kitchen.

This is definitely another feel-good recipe and one of my personal favorites. Baked in a hot oven, lightly fried chicken with tomato sauce and 3 cheeses, crispy and oozing, it just warms the soul.

I love serving it with a side of boiled potatoes. The smooth texture of potatoes, drizzled with olive oil, compliments the crispy, cheese chicken just perfectly. Each bite is worth all the cooking time.

To make Chicken Parmesan, you will need the following ingredients:

So, how to make Chicken Parmesan?

Steps to make Chicken Parmesan

1

Preheat oven

5

Preheat the oven to 450 °F.

2

Tenderize chicken

2

Place chicken breasts between two sheets of heavy plastic (releasable freezer bags work well) on a solid, level surface. Firmly pound chicken with the smooth side of a meat mallet, to a thickness ½-inch. Season chicken thoroughly with salt and pepper.

3

Beat eggs

2

In a shallow bowl, beat eggs and set aside.

4

Mix bread crumbs

1

In a separate bowl, mix the bread crumbs and ½ cup Parmesan cheese, set aside.

5

Coat chicken breasts

5

Place the flour in a sifter or a strainer and sprinkle over the chicken breasts, evenly coating both sides.

6

Bread chicken breasts

20

Dip flour coated chicken breasts into the beaten eggs. Transfer the breast to the breadcrumb mixture, pressing the crumbs into both sides of the chicken. Set aside the breaded chicken breasts for about 15 minutes.

7

Heat oil

2

In a large skillet, on a medium-high heat until it begins to shimmer, heat 1 cup oil.

8

Cook chicken

4

Cook chicken in the oil for about 2 minutes on each side, until golden.The chicken will finish cooking in the oven.

9

Add tomato sauce chicken

2

Place fried chicken breasts in a baking dish and top each one with about ⅓ cup of tomato sauce.

10

Add cheeses and basil

2

Layer each chicken breast with an equal amount of mozzarella cheese, fresh basil, and provolone cheese between. Sprinkle 1-2 tbsp of Parmesan cheese on top and drizzle with 1 tbsp olive oil.

11

Bake in oven

20

Bake in the preheated oven for about 15-20 minutes until the cheese is browned and bubbly, and chicken breasts are no longer pink in the center. An instant-read thermometer inserted should read at least 165 °F.
