How to Make Chicken Parmesan

Stir in the herbs, tomatoes, tomato puree, oregano and sugar and season with salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, cover, and simmer for 20 min. then transfer to a blender and puree.

  3. Place the chicken pieces in a large zip loc bag and pound with a meat mallet until chicken is about 1/4 ins thick, Season both sides with salt and pepper. Dust a chicken breast with flour(shake off the excess)dip in the egg to coat, then dip In the bread crumbs to coat both sides, set aside and do the same with all the chicken pieces
  4. Heat the oil in a skillet over med-high heat, add as many chicken pieces that will fit in the skillet ( don't crowd) cook on each side for 2 min, until golden.
