Chicken Parmigiana

  • Servings: 4
Chicken Parmigiana

Source: Everyday Food, May/June 2003

Ingredients

  • 8 chicken breast cutlets, or 4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves, split horizontally into 8 cutlets (1 1/2 pounds total)
  • 1/2 cup dried breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 cup finely grated Parmesan cheese
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 cups spaghetti sauce, homemade or purchased
  • 8 slices (1/4-inch-thick) mozzarella cheese, preferably fresh (6 ounces)

Directions

  1. Preheat broiler with rack set 4 inches away from the heat source. Combine the breadcrumbs and the Parmesan cheese in a shallow dish. Place the egg in a second shallow dish. Season chicken on both sides with salt and pepper. Dip chicken in egg, turning to coat. Transfer to breadcrumb mixture, turning to coat; set aside.

  2. Pour spaghetti sauce into a 10-by-15-inch baking dish, or a rimmed baking sheet. In a large nonstick skillet, heat half of the oil over medium heat. Add half of the chicken, and cook until golden, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Transfer to a paper-towel-lined baking sheet to drain, then place in prepared baking dish. Repeat with remaining oil and chicken.

  3. Top each piece of chicken with a slice of mozzarella. Broil until sauce is hot, and mozzarella is melted and lightly browned in spots, 5 to 8 minutes.

    This is one of my favorite recipes to make because it tastes amazing and is so easy! I made it for my fiance for his birthday last year and he asked for it again!! The first time I made it, I used store bought bread crumbs and it didn't stick as well; the fresh ones are really important.

    Very easy and delicious. Shredded mozzarella works well too. I usually add a little parmesan at the end.

    I have used this recipe for years and it is one of my family's favorites. I would recommend using the fresh mozzarella. It really makes it special.
