Description

Crispy Baked Chicken Parmesan is a classic dinner option to cook up in your kitchen with ease! Chicken breasts that have been cut in half are dredged in a parmesan and Panko breading and baked until perfectly crispy. Spoon a little marina sauce on the tops and then a layer of mozzarella cheese and broil until all sorts of melty and delicious. A simple spin on a classic recipe!


Scale

Ingredients

  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (about 1 1/2 pounds)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup Panko bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup finely grated parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Cooking spray or olive oil
  • 1 cup marinara
  • 4 oz shredded mozzarella cheese or 8 oz fresh mozzarella sliced
  • Fresh basil for garnish if desired

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Cut the chicken breasts in half horizontally by firmly pressing down on top with one hand and carefully using a knife to cut the chicken breast evenly in half horizontally, letting the knife do most of the work. Pat the 4 cuts of chicken dry with a paper towel.
  2. In a shallow plastic container or bowl, whisk the egg. In another equally sized container or bowl, mix together the Panko bread crumbs, parmesan cheese, onion powder, garlic powder and salt.
  3. Working with one piece of chicken at a time, dredge it in the egg wash and then transfer to the breading and coat/pat the breading on all sides of the chicken breast until completely coated. Place the prepared chicken breast on a parchment or foil-lined baking sheet. Repeat with the other pieces of chicken.
  4. Evenly spray the tops of the chicken breasts with cooking spray or brush with olive oil. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through.
  5. Preheat your broiler. Spoon about 1/4 cup of marinara on top of each chicken breast and then evenly top with the mozzarella cheese. Put the chicken back under the broiler for 3-5 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly. Watch carefully to prevent burning.
  6. Garnish with fresh basil if desired and enjoy!

Notes

  • Both fresh mozzarella or shredded block mozzarella work for this recipe. The fresh mozzarella will melt and give you the look from the pictures above.
  • Serve this Crispy Baked Chicken Parmesan with your favorite pasta, risotto or polenta.
