This Chicken Parmesan recipe is so delicious and one of my favourites! Chicken Parmesan is a great recipe for chicken. Just follow the easy step-by-step recipe to make a healthy homemade Chicken Parmesan for your family.

Yield: Serves 2


    For chicken:

  • 2 chicken breast cutlets, about 400 g
  • 1/2 cup dry bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup freshly Parmesan cheese, grated
  • 4 slices of mozzarella cheese
  • 1 egg
  • 6 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons fresh basil leaves, finely chopped
  • salt
  • For sauce:

  • 1 medium onion, grated on the large holes of a box grater
  • 2 medium tomatoes, grated on the large holes of a box grater
  • 2 medium garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 1/2 cups crushed tomatoes
  • 5 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar

Prepare the sauce: Heat olive oil in a saucepan on medium-high heat. Add the onions and fry for 2-3 minutes. Add the minced garlic and cook for 1 minute or until fragrant. Then add the grated tomatoes, crushed tomatoes, oregano, red pepper flakes and sugar. Bring to a simmer. Reduce the heat to medium. Cook uncovered for 10-12 minutes. Set aside.

Wash and pat dry the chicken breasts. Put each chicken breast between two layers of plastic wrap, on a chopping board and pound them to a thickness of approximately 1/4 inch.

Chicken Parmesan

Season each side with salt. In a shallow bowl (large enough to dredge the cutlets), mix together the bread crumbs and 1/4 cup of the Parmesan.

In separate shallow bowl, beat the egg. Dip the chicken breasts (1 piece at a time) in egg and then coat with bread crumbs mixture.

Chicken Parmesan

Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat until hot. Add chicken breasts. Reduce the heat to medium and cook until they are golden brown, about 3-4 minutes on each side.

Chicken Parmesan

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Spread enough tomato sauce to thickly coat the bottom of a 8x11-inch baking dish.

Chicken Parmesan

Place the chicken breasts on top of the tomato sauce in the baking dish.

Chicken Parmesan

Pour the tomato sauce over each of the chicken breasts. Sprinkle the tops with chopped basil.

Chicken Parmesan

Top the chicken breasts with slices of mozzarella, put two on each chicken breast. Then sprinkle with the remaining 1/4 cup of Parmesan cheese.

Chicken Parmesan

Bake in the oven for 12-15 minutes, or until the mozzarella begins to brown. Serve with spaghetti, garlic bread and the remaining sauce.
