Chicken Parmesan

MarthaRayDeen -


My family loves when I make my Chicken Parmesan and serve it with Vodka sauce pasta. This is also a good version if you have those who don't particularly like tomato sauce, as you can make the chicken parm "naked" with no sauce and it's still scrumptious!

How to Make Chicken Parmesan

  2. In a shallow bowl, combine bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese and basil.
  3. In another bowl, beat the egg with salt and pepper.
  4. In yet another bowl, combine the flour, garlic, oregano and pepper.
  5. Coat chicken with seasoned flour, then dip chicken into egg, and finally, coat with crumb mixture.
  6. In a large skillet, brown chicken in butter and oil over medium heat for 5-8 minutes on each side or until juices run clear. (avoid overcooking)
  7. Take cooked chicken and spoon about 2 tablespoons of your fav. red sauce over each piece and cover with shredded cheese. Sprinkle on some parsley for an added touch. Broil on high until Mozzarella starts to brown.
  8. Serve with pasta and veggies...yum!!!
