Best Ever Crispy Chicken Parmesan

Servings: 4

Servings: 4


2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts.

1 teaspoon salt

½ teaspoon pepper

½ teaspoon onion powder

1 cup flour

2 eggs

1 cup seasoned bread crumbs

2 cups marinara sauce

8 slices of fresh mozzarella

½ cup grated Parmesan

Basil, thinly sliced, to serve


1. Preheat oven to 450°F (230°C).

2. Cut the chicken breasts in half widthwise to make 4 thin breasts.

3. Season the chicken with salt, pepper, and onion powder.

4. Coat the chicken in flour, then egg, and then bread crumbs.

5. Heat oil in a cast iron skillet and fry the chicken on both sides until brown, about 4 minutes each side. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate to drain.

6. Place the fried chicken breasts in a baking dish. If they don’t fit side by side, gently overlap them.

7. Pour the marinara over the chicken and top with mozzarella slices and Parmesan.

8. Bake for 10-15 minutes, or until the cheese is browned and bubbling.

9. Serve with freshly chopped basil.

10. Enjoy!
