Classic Chicken Parmesan Recipe (VIDEO)

This classic Chicken Parmesan is as good as it gets! It has a parmesan crust that seals in the juiciest chicken breast, topped with Homemade Marinara and a generous amount of melted cheese. The process to make this is surprisingly quick and easy.

Chicken Parmesan Recipe:

This is the classic version of Chicken Parm. A restaurant-quality Chicken Parmesan is so easy to recreate at home (for a fraction of the price). Since this chicken is breaded and covered in sauce, it also reheats really well so you will appreciate any leftovers. This is among our family’s favorite 30-minute meals.

This Chicken Parmesan Recipe is wonderful over hot pasta and served with Caesar Salad or Roasted Asparagus on the side. It can also be served as a hot sandwich on a toasted bun; yum!

What is Chicken Parmigiana?

The Italian name is Chicken Parmigiana and in the US, it has been nicknamed Chicken Parm, short for Chicken Parmesan. It is essentially breaded chicken breast covered in tomato sauce and cheese and is similar to Eggplant Parmesan.

How can something so simple be THIS good you ask? You only have to try it once and you will know why everyone is talking about this dish. P.S. If you want to take this a step further, you can also make Stuffed Chicken Parmesan.

Ingredients for Easy Chicken Parmesan:

You just need a few pantry staples to make Chicken Parm. This is the best with homemade marinara sauce but if you’re in a hurry, you can absolutely use your favorite store-bought marinara. All you need for the perfect chicken parm is:

  • Chicken breasts
  • Flour, salt, and pepper to dredge
  • Eggs, for the egg wash
  • Italian bread crumbs and parmesan for the crust
  • A good cooking oil
  • Marinara Sauce
  • Shredded Mozzarella
  • Parsley or basil to garnish

Ingredients for chicken parmesan with homemade marinara sauce, chicken breast, cheese, bread crumbs, eggs, flour and seasonings

How to Make Parmesan Crusted Chicken:

  1. Mak the easy 20-minute homemade marinara and while it simmers, continue to prep the chicken.
  2. Cut 2 chicken breasts in half length-wise for 4 cutlets and season with salt and pepper.
  3. Set up 3 shallow bowls: In the first bowl, combine flour, salt and pepper, in the second bowl, beat together 2 eggs and in the third bowl, stir together parmesan and bread crumbs
  4. Dredge chicken in flour, dusting off excess, then dip in eggs and turn to coat in bread crumbs.
  5. Once all chicken is breaded, heat a large non-stick skillet with enough oil to lightly coat the bottom and saute 3-4 minutes per side or until just cooked through at 165˚F on an instant-read thermometer. 
  6. Pour half of your marinara sauce in a casserole dish. Arrange chicken pieces over marinara in a single layer. Spoon on marinara sauce and top with cheese then bake in a casserole dish at 425˚F for 15 minutes until cheese is melted and sauce is bubbling.

Cook’s Tip: If chicken cutlets are large or uneven, use a meat mallet to pound between plastic wrap into 1/3″-thick cutlets and they will cook faster and more evenly.

Can Chicken Parm be Made Ahead?

You can saute the breaded chicken, arrange in a casserole dish and top with marinara and cheese, then cover and refrigerate. Bake before serving, but be sure to bake a few minutes longer since you are baking chilled chicken. Check the internal temperature of the chicken with an instant-read thermometer to ensure that it bakes to a safe 165˚F.

For a Healthier Baked Chicken Parmesan:

While we prefer sauteing the chicken lightly in oil because it is faster and uniformly golden, you can skip the pan-frying step and make this a healthier Baked Chicken Parmesan.

To make baked chicken parm, complete steps 1 through 3, lightly coat breaded chicken breasts with cooking spray on all sides and bake the chicken for 20-25 minutes then continue with the recipe in step 5.

Keyword: chicken parmesan
Cuisine: Italian
Course: Main Course
Calories: 499 kcal
Servings: 4 people

Ingredients

  • 2 chicken breasts (large), about 1 1/2 lbs
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 2 large eggs beaten until frothy
  • 1/2 cup Italian bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup parmesan cheese shredded or grated
  • 2 Tbsp Light olive oil to sauté
  • 24 oz marinara sauce
  • 4 oz mozzarella cheese (1 cup shredded)
  • 1 Tbsp fresh basil or parsley, chopped for optional garnish

Instructions

  1. Trim chicken breasts and slice in half length-wise so you end up with 4 equal-thickness cutlets.* Season with salt and pepper.

  2. In a shallow bowl, stir together 1/2 cup flour, 1 tsp salt, and 1/2 tsp black pepper. In a second bowl, whisk 2 eggs until frothy. In a third bowl, stir together 1/2 cup Italian bread crumbs with 1/2 cup parmesan cheese.

  3. Dip both sides of each chicken cutlet into the flour, tapping off excess, then dip in beaten eggs, letting excess egg drip off and finally dip into the cheesy breadcrumbs, pressing cutlets into breading to ensure a thick, even coating of crumbs.

  4. Heat a large non-stick pan over medium heat and add enough olive oil to lightly coat the bottom of the pan. Once oil is hot, add chicken in batches (don't crowd the pan), sautéing 3-4 min per side or until golden brown and just cooked through.

  5. Pour 1 1/2 cups of marinara into a 9x13 casserole baking dish. Arrange chicken over sauce in a single layer. Top each chicken down the center with remaining 1 1/2 cups marinara, then cover with shredded mozzarella. Bake uncovered at 425˚F for 15 minutes or until cheese is melted and sauce is bubbling. Garnish with chopped parsley or basil if desired.

Recipe Notes

*Cook's Tip: For large chicken breasts, pound your chicken between plastic wrap into even 1/3"-thick cutlets.

    Good for the most part BUT BUT BUT the amount of olive oil suggested (around 2 TBSP) didn’t come close to properly cook 1 1/2 lbs. of chicken. I’m a beginner #Easy Chicken Parm. wasn’t easy by your directions because I burned dinner for family All directions where closely followed…

      Hi Ben, when making breaded chicken, it is highly recommended to use a non-stick skillet which requires much less oil and is easier to turn, making it less likely to burn. I hope that helps for next time.

    What about making ahead of time and freezing?

      Hi Jaime, we have only enjoyed this fresh, but I imagine if I tried freezing, I think it would be best if you fry it first then freeze it, but you’ll need to bake it longer since it will go into the oven frozen. I think if you froze breaded un-fried chicken, it might be harder to fry later as the breading might get too moist once it’s thawed to saute it properly. I hope this is helpful!

      Hi Maureen, it may be the type of breading that is used (larger crumbs). Also, make sure to use a good non-stick skillet which definitely helps for sauteeing.

    I made this last night, homemade marinara and all. About the only deviation from the recipe was that I had the oven on 400 and left it in longer. But I don’t see how the chicken cutlets can stay crispy either way when soaking in all that sauce. Next time I’ll handle that part differently. Also, this ends up being very bland if you follow her directions to the letter. Next time, I will put more spices in the sauce and use the mozzarella in the breading and the Parmesan (more) on top. As a base recipe this is OK, but my idea of “restaurant quality” would include crispy cutlets and more flavor.

    Reply

      July 30, 2020

      Hi Laurie this normally has tons of flavor – did you possibly forget to season the flour? Also, using Italian bread crumbs will give you more flavor than plain bread crumbs or panko.

    Just wanted to let you know ….I made the Chicken Parmesan this evening and it was delicious! The marinara sauce was spot on and so easy to make.
    Thank you so much!

    Question- I would like to take this to a family for dinner. Do you think it would work to put the sauce in the bottom of the pan as instructed, then add some cooked spaghetti before topping it off with the chicken and remainder of sauce?

      Hi Lee, I usually just top the chicken on pasta after the chicken is fully cooked. That could work but you may need more sauce so the pasta doesn’t dry out.

    Wow, just made this again tonight. Even better the second time around. Instead of having it with pasta I made a side salad….saved some calories, win/win.
    Next week I’m going to make the beef and broccoli recipe. I’ll let you know how it turns out.

    Wow, never made Chicken Parm before. It was moist and delicious and although I made buttered noodles I really didn’t need them. I ate a few, but opted to go for another breast of chicken instead! Great flavors.

    First of all, I love your videos. Your smile is infectious. I don’t care for chicken breast so can I use thighs instead?

      May 13, 2020

      Hi Traci, I always make this with Chicken breast but that should still work. You will just need to do a little more trimming and chicken thighs take a little longer to cook through so just make sure they are fully cooked through before putting them in the oven.

    Chicken Parmi…
    I’ve made this recipe many times before but with a few variations…
    Firstly i make a sauce based on tinned tomatos , garlic , capsicums and herbs like basil , oregano and thyme and using a hand held blender blitz until nearly smooth.
    For the chicken after shallow frying I top with the sauce and place good quality ham slices to cover chicken then use just about any cheese on top and place under griller to melt and brown the cheese.
    Few small pieces of gorgonzola makes a delicious variation.

    Hi,
    I’m learning a lot from you videos and recipies. I have a question, I bought pre breaded chicken. How do I add the sauce ? Can I make warm the pre breaded on the pan or does it need to be done in the oven ?

      April 11, 2020

      Hi, it depends on if the chicken is already pre-cooked. For food safety, I would suggest following the baking instructions on your package then adding the marinara and cheese and baking in the oven just until cheese is melted and sauce is hot.
