Over the years I've made many chicken parmesan dishes, yet none have really been a keeper (except for my parmesan chicken casserole which is by far thee most popular recipe on this blog). I never would have thought a recipe this simple would become my go-to parmesan chicken recipe.
Recipe adapted from here.
4 chicken breast
3/4 cup panko
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon dried basil
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
1 cup marinara sauce
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Grease a cookie sheet with cooking spray.
In a shallow dish, combine, panko, oregano, basil, and Parmesan. Place melted butter in a second shallow dish. Set aside.
Slice the chicken breasts in half horizontally so you have 8 thin chicken breasts. Dip the chicken breast in the butter then coat it in the panko mixture. Place on cookie sheet and repeat with the rest of the chicken.
Lightly spray a little cooking spray on the top of the chicken breasts. Bake for 20 minutes. Flip chicken over and bake for another 5 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through.
Remove from oven and spoon 1 tablespoon of sauce over each chicken breast and then sprinkle with mozzarella, dividing the cheese equally between the breasts.
Bake for 5 minutes or until the cheese is melted.
