The Best Chicken Parmesan

September 25, 2013

Chicken parmesan is a homey meal for any night of the week.  Crispy chicken cutlets are smothered in marinara sauce and mozzarella and usually paired with pasta.  For a twist on the classic, you can also serve the chicken in a bun to create chicken parmesan sliders.

Chicken Parmesan


1/2 cup flour
3 eggs beaten
vegetable oil for frying (you can bake them too, but they're better fried!)
4 cups mozzarella cheese (depending on how much cheese you like)
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese (Grated fresh, not from a green can)
Depending on how think your chicken breasts are, place them under plastic wrap and pound until thin. If you don't have a meat pounder, use a heavy pot of skillet. You can also fillet these with a knife.
Get 3 pie plates or containers. Put flour in one, beaten eggs in one and bread crumbs in one.
Dredge chicken breast in flour, then in the egg wash, and then the bread crumbs.
Fry cutlets in vegetable oil over med heat. Fry until golden brown.
Spread a little marinara on the bottom of a 13x9 baking dish.
Make a layer of chicken. Add more marinara. Use most of the first quart. Add a layer of the cheeses. Repeat layers. Sprinkle parsley over last layer of cheese. Bake in a pre-heated 350 degree oven covered for 35 minutes. uncover and bake until top is bubbly!
