Alright so today I will be sharing a really easy recipe that requires minimum work and a few pantry-staple ingredients
Easy. Breezy. Beautiful. Chicken Parm!
Absolutely love it
The chicken is juicy and covered in yummy marinara and lots of gooey cheese, served with some linguine in marinara and some crusty garlic bread - you have a perfectly ahhmazing meal that was really easy to make
And since the chicken is baked rather than fried, it makes it healthier. So go ahead and pile on the cheese
Lighter Chicken Parmesan
2 boneless chicken breasts, pounded to 1/4 to 1/2 in thickness
1/2 cup panko breadcrumbs
1/4 cup shredded parmesan cheese
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp dried basil
salt and pepper
3/4 cup marinara sauce
4 slices of mozzarella
extra shredded parmesan for topping
Preheat oven to 400F.
Whisk the egg in a bowl. Mix the flour, panko, parmesan, garlic. basil in a shallow dish. Salt and pepper both sides of your chicken breasts, then dip the chicken first in the egg then in the flour mixture. Place on a foil lined baking sheet. Bake for 16mins flipping once halfway through.
In a 8×8 baking dish, pour 1/4 cup of the sauce. Top with the cooked chicken breast, then with the remaining marinara. Top with a few slices of mozzarella and a generous amount of shredded parmesan.
Bake for another 5-8 mins or until the cheese is melted and the chicken is cooked through. Sprinkle with some chopped fresh basil.
