Skip the restaurant and enjoy this Easy Chicken Parmesan Recipe for dinner tonight! A crispy crust made from parmigiana cheese and breadcrumbs coats juicy chicken breasts that are cooked in a skillet with a marinara tomato sauce. Serve it over a bed of spaghetti pasta with shredded Mozzarella cheese for a healthy Italian dish that can easily be made gluten-free!
Using a meat mallet, pound chicken breasts to ¾ to 1-inch thick and cut into 4-ounce portions.
In three separate shallow bowls add the flour, ¼ tsp. salt, and ¼ tsp. pepper to the first bowl, whisk the egg and milk in the second bowl, and toss together the cheese, breadcrumbs, Italian seasoning, and ½ tsp. salt in the third bowl.
Take one chicken breast and lightly coat it in the flour, dip it into the egg wash, and then coat it with the Parmesan cheese and breadcrumbs.
Add 2 tablespoons of olive oil to a large skillet over medium heat, or enough to coat the bottom of the pan.
Pour spaghetti sauce over chicken and pick up each breast so it gets underneath.
Cover skillet with a lid and reduce heat to low. Simmer for 8-10 minutes or until chicken is cooked through and the internal temperature is 165°.
Just before serving sprinkle 1-ounce of mozzarella cheese on each piece of chicken.
After cheese has melted serve chicken Parmesan with spaghetti noodles, roasted spaghetti squash, or zucchini noodles. Sprinkle with extra Parmesan cheese and fresh parsley. Enjoy!
