Oven Baked Chicken Parmesan


This delicious Oven Baked Chicken Parmesan recipe is easy and doesn't require any frying. Because this Chicken Parmesan is baked, it is healthier, quick and easy! Make this crispy baked Parmesan crusted chicken for dinner tonight in about thirty minutes!


PREP TIME: 10 minutes

COOK TIME: 20 minutes

TOTAL TIME: 30 minutes

YIELD: 4 servings


INGREDIENTS:

2 tablespoons Olive Oil

2 Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts, (about 1 pound total)

1 Egg

1 cup Panko Bread Crumbs

1/2 cup Parmesan Cheese, fresh grated

1 tablespoon Dried Oregano

1/2 teaspoon Garlic Powder

1 teaspoon Kosher Salt

1/2 teaspoon Black Pepper

1 cup Marinara Sauce (I use Ragu Traditional)

1 1/2 cups shredded Mozzarella Cheese

2 tablespoons minced Parsley, optional for garnish


INSTRUCTIONS:

1. Line a baking sheet with foil, brush foil with olive oil. Adjust oven rack so that it is in the second from the top space. Preheat the oven to 400° Fahrenheit.

2. Cut the chicken breasts in half and pound to even thickness. Cut through the middle of the chicken breast as if you are going to butterfly it (cutting it open like a book), but cut all the way through to make two equal sized pieces.

3. After cutting the chicken breasts in half, place them in a gallon size zip top bag in an even layer, seal it, then pound them to an even thickness using a meat pounder or a rolling pin. You can also place the chicken breasts between two layers of cling wrap instead of a zip top bag if you prefer.

4. Pat the chicken breasts dry with a paper towel, then season with salt and pepper.

5. In one shallow dish, mix together panko bread crumbs, grated Parmesan cheese, salt, pepper, garlic powder, oregano, and black pepper.

6. In another shallow dish, whisk the egg.

7. Dip one chicken breast into the egg, then into the bread crumb mixture. Ensure chicken breast is fully coated in the crumb mixture, and gently press with your hand to help the crumbs stick to the chicken. Place chicken breast on prepared baking sheet, repeat with remaining pieces of chicken.

8. Place baking sheet in oven on the second from the top rack. Bake for 15 minutes, or until cooked through.

9. Flop chicken, pour 1/4 cup of marinara sauce over each piece of chicken, then top with cheese. Place back in the oven. Turn on the broiler. Broil for 2-4 minutes, until cheese is melted, bubbly and starting to brown around the edges of the chicken.
