Our Classic Chicken Parmigiana is an easy version of an all-time Italian favorite. It's perfect for dinner, served up with some pasta and sauce, and it's great filling crusty Italian bread for an unbeatable sandwich, too.
What You'll Need
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
- 1 1/2 cups Italian-flavored bread crumbs
- 6 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves (1-1/2 to 2 pounds total), pounded to ¼-inch thickness
- 1/2 cup olive oil
- 1 1/2 cups spaghetti sauce, warmed
- 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded mozzarella cheese
What to Do
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Coat a rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray.
- In a shallow dish, beat together eggs, salt, and pepper. Place bread crumbs in another shallow dish. Dip each chicken breast into egg mixture then into bread crumbs, coating completely; set aside.
- Meanwhile, in a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Brown chicken breasts two at a time 2 to 3 minutes per side. Drain on paper towels.
- Place browned chicken on prepared baking sheet and spread spaghetti sauce evenly over each piece of chicken. Sprinkle with cheese and bake 3 to 5 minutes, or until heated through and cheese is melted.
- Add fresh Italian bread, a salad, and some spaghetti marinara and you'll have yourself a perfect Italian dinner.
