Easy Chicken Parmigiana

First of all, thank you for all the loveย about my picky eating article! I actually wrote the article a long time ago but was nervous about posting it, so thank you for all the supportive comments. It really means a lot to me.

There isn’t much of a recipe behind this easy chicken parmigiana. It is more just a method of assembling all the yummy bits! After you’ve made it once, it is easy enough to throw it together by memory the next time which is always appreciated on a busy weeknight!

I am not really sure where I got this recipe from, but I think I must have adapted the veal parmigiana that my grandma used to make. . . or perhaps my mom used to make this? Gosh, I must be getting old . . . or tired! Ha! Either way, I’m guessing my mom will comment below on where this likely came from! Thanks in advance, ma. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Easy Chicken Parmigiana

Print Recipe

Ingredients

  • 4 chicken breasts
  • panko style bread crumbs
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons dried basil
  • 2 tablespoons dried oregano
  • 2 tablespoons dried marjoram
  • olive oil
  • 100g (1 cup) grated mozzarella cheese (use more if you prefer!)
  • plenty of pasta sauce (I used two of these* which are currently on sale!)

Instructions

1

pre-heat the oven to 200ยฐC (400ยฐF)

2

use a meat mallet to thin out your chicken breasts (or don't, but I prefer them this way)

3

pour your bread crumbs into a shallow bowl and mix in herbs

4

in another shallow bowl, whip up your eggs

5

individually coat each chicken breast in egg before coating it in the breadcrumbs. Use your fingers to press the crumbs into the chicken where necessary.

6

using a generous drizzle of olive oil (approximately 4 tablespoons) fry up your chicken in a large pan over medium heat until each side is a nice, golden brown (3-5 minutes each side)

7

coat a baking dish with a layer of pasta sauce before laying your cooked chicken into the dish

8

spoon more sauce onto each chicken breast

9

cover each breast with a handful of mozzarella cheese (still talking about the chicken here . . . )

10

bake until the cheese begins to brown and bubble (approximately 15 minutes)

11

while the chicken bakes, cook your pasta and veg (we had green beans)

    I used to make this, but it was based on Grandma’s recipe. You can also do eggplant parmesan – I really like it a lot. Btw, I love your blog! Signed: A proud Mama
