  • Skillet
  • Oven


Marinate The Chicken

  • 4 large Chicken breast
  • 2 Large eggs
  • 1 Tsp. Kosher salt
  • 1 Tbsp. Parsley flakes
  • 1 tsp. Garlic powder

For The Breading

  • 1 cup Parmesan cheese grated
  • ½ Cup Breadcrumbs
  • 1 Tsp. Garlic Powder

For The Sauce

  • 24 oz Spaghetti Sauce
  • 1 ½ tsp. Salt
  • 2 tsp.  Dry basil
  • 1 tsp. Onion powder
  • tsp. Ground black pepper


  • 2 Tbsp. Olive Oil More if needed
  • Mozzarella cheese


  • Cut the chicken breasts into big and thin cutlets, and you can do this by slicing them horizontally.
    Then, line up the shallow dishes or bowls, baking pans, or pie plates, and start filling them. One bowl should have a combination of salt, garlic powder, eggs, and parsley flakes.
    The other plate should have a combination of breadcrumbs, parmesan cheese, and garlic powder.
    Add the chicken to the egg mixture and allow it to marinate for a least 30 minutes.
    Parmesan Chicken Step by step 1
  • When ready, transfer the chicken, one at a time, to the breadcrumb mixture. Coat well on both sides.
    In a large skillet heated olive oil over medium heat, fry the chicken breast slices for two minutes per side. This will help lock in the juice and will provide a golden crust.
    When the chicken is cooked, transfer the meat onto a baking sheet and top it with marinara sauce and mozzarella sliced cheese. You may also use parmesan cheese or provolone cheese.
    Bake the chicken until it’s done and the cheese will be all bubbly and melted.
    Serve and enjoy!
