Skillet Parmesan Chicken


Servings: 4
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves
  • salt and pepper
  • 1⁄2 cup flour
  • 1⁄2 cup Italian seasoned breadcrumbs
  • 1⁄4 cup parmesan cheese
  • 1 egg
  • 1⁄2 cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • more parmesan cheese, for sprinkling on top
  • 4 ounces sliced mozzarella cheese (if you can get it, the soft fresh kind is best, it melts sooooo creamy)
  • your favorite marinara sauce or store bought spaghetti sauce
  • Pound the chicken breasts between two slices of plastic wrap until about 1/4" thick.
  • Season with salt and pepper.
  • Dredge chicken in flour and shake off excess.
  • Dip in egg/milk mixture, then in breadcrumb/Parmesan mixture.
  • Heat the butter and olive oil in a large deep skillet.
  • Brown the chicken breasts over medium heat until golden on each side (about 2-3 min per side).
  • Remove to a plate and keep warm.
  • Add the marinara sauce to the skillet.
  • Heat to boiling and simmer 10 minutes.
  • Add the chicken breasts to the sauce and sprinkle Parmesan over them.
  • Place a slice of mozzarella on each piece of chicken.
  • Cover and simmer about 8- 10 minutes or until the cheese has melted and the chicken is tender.
  • Serve with your favorite pasta- we like linguine.
