Savory and delicious, this authentic homemade chicken parmesan is one of our favorite classic Italian meals. Breaded chicken breast is baked with marinara or homemade pasta sauce and plenty of cheese before being served over spaghetti or zucchini noodles. Serve with our Caeser salad and cheesy pull-apart bread.

  • 2 tablespoons parsley

I absolutely love using Perdue Farms chicken breast for this recipe. I am able to order online and have it shipped directly to my door, which makes it so easy. They have a huge range of quality, premium meats including chicken, steaks, pork and more available on their website, making it simple for me to stock my freezer!

HOW TO MAKE THIS CHICKEN PARMESAN RECIPE

START: Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Prep three dishes: one with flour, one with beaten eggs, and one with bread crumbs, Parmesan, salt, pepper, and parsley.

STEP ONE: Pound chicken breasts to ½ inch thick. If necessary, you can cut large breasts in half.

PRO TIP: Place the chicken breasts between sheets of plastic wrap to eliminate mess.

STEP TWO: Dip chicken in flour, then eggs, then bread crumb mix — make sure it’s well coated in each step.

STEP THREE: Cook in olive oil in a large pan, browning on each side, which should take about four minutes per side.

STEP FOUR: Place one cup of marinara sauce in the bottom of a 9×13 dish, then lay the chicken on top. Divide the remaining marinara sauce across the top of each piece of chicken, then top with mozzarella cheese.

STEP FIVE: Bake for 25-30 minutes until internal chicken temperature reaches 165 degrees. You can top with fresh chopped basil before serving over spaghetti.

PRO TIP: You can serve over any type of pasta you have on hand, or egg noodles, spaghetti squash, zucchini noodles, or even mashed potatoes!

STORAGE

IN THE FRIDGE: You can store chicken in the fridge for 2-3 days and then reheat in the oven at 325 degrees.

IN THE FREEZER: After baking and cooling, you can freeze for up to three months. I recommend wrapping well in plastic wrap and then placing them inside a freezer-safe bag for easy storage.

    Can’t wait to try this! I’m going to make it tonight for my husband’s potluck at work tomorrow— do you think it would be tacky to use chicken strips to make it more office friendly?
