Chicken Parmesan


Ingredients:

  • - 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts

  • - 1 cup all-purpose flour

  • - 2 eggs

  • - 1 cup breadcrumbs

  • - 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese

  • - 1 tsp garlic powder

  • - 1 tsp dried oregano

  • - 1 tsp dried basil

  • - Salt and pepper, to taste

  • - 1 cup marinara sauce

  • - 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

  • - Fresh basil leaves for garnish


Instructions:

1. Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C) and prepare a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.


2. Place the chicken breasts between two sheets of plastic wrap and pound them with a meat mallet until they are about 1/2 inch thick.



3. In three separate shallow bowls, place the flour in one, whisk the eggs in another, and combine the breadcrumbs, Parmesan cheese, garlic powder, oregano, basil, salt, and pepper in the third.


4. Dredge each chicken breast in the flour, then dip it into the beaten eggs, and finally coat it in the breadcrumb mixture, pressing gently to adhere.



5. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and add enough oil to cover the bottom of the pan. Fry the breaded chicken breasts for 3-4 minutes on each side, or until they are golden brown and cooked through.


6. Place the cooked chicken breasts on the prepared baking sheet and top each one with a spoonful of marinara sauce and a generous sprinkle of shredded mozzarella cheese.



7. Bake the Chicken Parmesan in the preheated oven for 10-15 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.


8. Remove the Chicken Parmesan from the oven and garnish with fresh basil leaves before serving.



9. Serve the Chicken Parmesan hot with a side of pasta, salad, or garlic bread for a complete and satisfying meal.


Enjoy this delicious and comforting Chicken Parmesan with your family and friends. Bon appétit!
