This dish can be made many ways but I find this tastes the best.It is another family favorite. This can be served with any type of pasta and a salad or vegetable.I like to use just buttered noodles as the flavors from the chicken are enough.

How to Make Chicken Parmigiana (Parmesan)

Step-by-Step

  1. If your cutlets are really thick it will take too long to cook so I like to pound them thin between two pieces of clear wrap or place them in a plastic bag and pound with a food mallet.
    Season the chicken with salt and pepper.
    Set up your workstation with bread crumbs, flour and egg.Dip each cutlet in flour, egg, then bread crumbs.
  2. Once they are all ready, Fry in a fry pan with heated cooking oil until golden brown, about 2-3 minutes on each side.If you have a big frypan you can do them in two batches. If you have a smaller fry pan, don't use all the oil as it may be too much.
  3. Transfer to a long baking pan lined with about a cup of tomato sauce. Top each cutlet with some tomato sauce, parmesan cheese and mozzarella.Bake in a 350 degree oven for about 7-10 minutes or until cheese melts. Remove from the oven and sprinkle some basil or parsley.
