What you’ll need:
2 boneless and skinless chicken breasts
1 1/2 cups Italian style bread crumbs (see how I make mine here: http://youtu.be/GMTG73oBXXQ )
3/4 cup shredded parmesan cheese, divided
1/2 cup flour
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
2 large eggs
extra virgin olive oil
marinara sauce (see how I make mine here: http://youtu.be/5VCVpovJHm4 )
approx. 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
pasta of your choice
Trim chicken breasts and cut in half. Place between waxed paper or plastic wrap and pound out to about 1/2 inch thick. Set aside.
In one bowl, combine flour, salt and pepper. In another, whisk eggs and in another mix bread crumbs and 1/4 cup parmesan cheese.
To bread the chicken, dredge in flour, then eggs and then into bread crumbs. Press the crumbs into the chicken. Place onto a plate and let set for 15 minutes. This helps the coating stick to the chicken.
In a skillet, add enough olive oil to make it 1/4″ deep. Heat over medium high heat and fry the chicken for about 2 minutes on each side. Remove to a paper towel lined plate to drain excess oil. Place into a baking dish and top with marinara sauce. Sprinkle mozzarella over top then remaining parmesan. Bake in a preheated 350*F oven for 20-30 minutes or until chicken is done and cheese is melted and browned on top. Serve on it’s own, over pasta or make into sandwiches. Makes 4 large chicken parmesans. Enjoy!!
