Crispy Chicken Parmesan w/ Mary Ann's Sauce

This is my favorite chicken parmesan with a deliciously crispy coating and even better with my homemade spaghetti sauce!

This recipe has a few more steps but so worth it and made just a little easier with my Spaghetti sauce.

The Chicken:

2 large eggs

1 tablespoon minced garlic

2 tablespoons fresh chopped parsley

salt and pepper to season

3 large chicken breast halved horizontally to make 6 fillets

1 cup Panko breadcrumbs

1/2 cup Italian seasoned breadcrumbs

1 teaspoon garlic or onion powder

1/2 cup olive oil for frying

8 oz mozzarella cheese sliced

1/3 cup fresh shredded parmesan cheese

2 tablespoons fresh chopped basil


1. Preheat oven 425 lightly grease an oven tray or baking dish set aside

2. Whisk together eggs, garlic, parsley, salt and pepper in a shallow dish. Add chicken into the egg mixture and coat each fillet well. Cover with plastic wrap and marinate for at least 15 minutes or overnight if time allows for a deeper flavor.

3. Mix bread crumbs, parmesan cheese garlic powder together in a separate bowl. Dip chicken into breadcrumbs mixture to evenly coat.

4. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium to high heat until hot and shimmering. Fry chicken until golden brown about 4-5 minutes per side.

5. Place chicken on prepared baking dish and top each breast with about a 1/3 cup of sauce and top with mozzarella cheese and about 2 tablespoons of parmesan cheese sprinkle with basil.

6. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until cheese is bubbling and melted and chicken is completely cooked through.

Serve with your favorite pasta, mashed potatoes, steamed or roasted veggies and salad for a delish meal that your family will be asking for over and over.
