Chicken Parmesan/Parmigiana

Whether called Chicken Parmigiana or Chicken Parmesan, this is a popular and easy meal. It can be served with a side of pasta, salad and crusty bread or salad and bread alone.IMG_9990 

To avoid chicken splatters, pound the chicken in a plastic bag or between slices of waxed paper.

  • 2 boneless chicken breasts, pounded to 1/2-inch thickness
  • 1 egg, whisked
  • 1/2 C flour seasoned with salt & pepper
  • 1/2 C seasoned bread crumbs
  • 1/4 C olive oil
  • 1 jar (16 oz.) tomato sauce
  • 1/4 C grated Parmesan cheese
  • Shredded or sliced Mozzarella cheese
  1. IMG_9993Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Set up 3 pans for flour, egg and breadcrumbs. Dredge chicken breasts in the seasoned flour and tap off excess.
  2. Dip chicken in egg, then dredge in bread crumbs.
  3. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
  4. Brown the chicken about 3 to 4 IMG_9997minutes on each side on both sides until golden.
  5. Add some tomato sauce on bottom of glass backing dish and then add chicken on top.
  6. Pour sauce on top of chicken breasts and top with mozzarella and parmesan cheeses.IMG_0002

this dish looks beyond yummy. and i had to LOL at the put the chicken in a bag, i had this picture in my mind of hammering a piece of chicken and that reminded me of back in 1986 we went to visit my son and his wife at TGiving and when we got there, she had stuffed her turkey in the microwave with nothing under it because it barely fit and had turned it on. let your imagination finish this story.

Hi B...It looks so delicious...but I am miserable with this darn runny nose,sneezing,coughing, and wetting my pants grrrr!!
So the best part for me right now would be pounding the dickens out of that chicken breast to get out my flustrations ; ]!!

That looks really tasty! I will have Sweet Thing try this out this weekend. And it's low-fat and healthy because it's chicken, right? (just say yes) HAHA!

Elaine, hope you enjoy the meal.

Daisy, both Grenville and I enjoy cooking and there's nothing better than eating something we've prepared.

Thanks Mildred and Elaine.

Sandra, funny story now but maybe not back then.

Grace, pounding chicken does get out a lot of frustration, so maybe you need to hit some. Hope you feel better soon.

Welcome Swampdog and thanks for the comments. Do let me know if you have Sweet Thing cook this dinner. The chicken is low fat, but. Oct so much the cheeses :-)
