The Best Chicken Parmesan

IngredientsMarinara Sauce

  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped yellow onion
  • 2 garlic cloves minced (2 tsp)
  • 1 (28 oz) can crushed Roma tomatoes
  • 1/4 tsp dried oregano
  • 2 fresh basil sprigs*
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper

Chicken

  • 2 (8 oz) boneless skinless chicken breasts trimmed halved horizontally* and pounded to 1/2-inch thick
  • 2 oz whole-milk mozzarella cheese shredded (1/2 cup)
  • 2 oz provolone cheese shredded (1/2 cup) (I just bought a very thick slice from the deli counter then grated it)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 Tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 oz Parmesan cheese finely shredded (1/2 cup)
  • 1/2 cup Panko bread crumbs
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup torn fresh basil

Instructions

  1. For the sauce heat 1 Tbsp olive oil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat.
  2. Add in onions and saute for 2 minutes then add garlic and saute 30 seconds longer.
  3. Stir in crushed tomatoes 1/4 tsp salt oregano and 2 fresh basil sprigs then season with salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Bring mixture to a simmer then reduce heat to low and allow to simmer 20 minutes stirring occasionally until thickened. Remove basil remove from heat and cover saucepan with lid.
  5. For the chicken while sauce is simmering sprinkle each side of the chicken cutlet lightly with salt let stand at room temperature 10 minutes.
  6. Adjust oven rack 4-inches from broiler element and preheat broiler.
  7. In a shallow dish whisk together flour and egg until smooth. In a separate shallow dish toss together Parmesan cheese Panko bread crumbs garlic powder oregano and 1/4 tsp pepper.
  8. Pat chicken dry with paper towels then working with 1 chicken cutlet at a time dredge chicken in egg mixture coating both sides and allowing excess to run off then immediately transfer to Parmesan mixture and coat both sides with mixture while pressing to allow crumbs to adhere.
  9. Transfer chicken to a plate and repeat process with remaining chicken cutlets. Pour olive oil into a 10-inch non-stick skillet and heat over medium-high heat.
  10. Once oil is shimmering add 2 coated chicken cutlets and fry without moving them until bottom is crispy and golden brown about 2 – 3 minutes then using metal tongs rotate to opposite side and cook until golden brown about 2 – 3 minutes longer until (chicken should be about 155 degrees it will cook just briefly in oven).
  11. Transfer fried chicken to a baking sheet. Repeat process with remaining 2 pieces of chicken.
  12. Toss Mozzarella and provolone together and sprinkle cheese mixture in a mound over cutlets.
  13. Broil in oven until cheese is melted (you can let it brown a little if you like) about 1 – 2 minutes (keep a close eye on it!).
  14. Remove from oven and cover each cutlet with 2 Tbsp marinara sauce. Sprinkle tops evenly with remaining 1/4 cup fresh basil and serve immediately (serve extra sauce with pasta on the side).
