Chicken parmesan is delicious. Really, what else can I say? What’s not to love about flavorful, pan-fried chicken with rich tomato sauce and lots of cheese?
We’ve made this recipe for years, and my kids even make it for themselves now. Yes…they throw this together last-minute because they’re hungry. But it works.
It’s traditionally served with white pasta, which is not healthy and makes for a very grain-heavy meal. Sometimes I serve it with spaghetti squash, or zoodles, or some type of alternative-grain pasta. Your choice — there are lots of ways to make this a healthier meal, if you’re so inclined.
Recipe Collection: Chicken Parmesan
- 4 – 6 chicken breast pieces, thinly sliced
- 1/2 c. sprouted flour or whole wheat flour
- 1/2 c. breadcrumbs
- 1/2 tsp. onion powder
- 1/2 tsp. parsley
- 1 tsp. sea salt
- 1 egg
- 1/2 c. milk
- 3 – 4 garlic cloves
- Olive oil
- 32 oz. tomato sauce
- 4 oz. mozzarella
- 1 oz. parmesan
Step 1: Prepare the breading for the chicken. That’s the flour, breadcrumbs, onion powder, sea salt, parsley. Combine it in a medium bowl.
Step 2: In another bowl, combine the egg and milk, and mix it together.
Step 3: Dip the chicken into the egg/milk mixture, and then into the breadcrumb mixture. Pour oil into a large frying pan, and add the chicken and garlic cloves. The garlic will give it a great flavor.
Step 4: Cook the chicken about 5 minutes on each side, until it’s cooked through and the breading is golden brown.
Step 5: Put the chicken into a 9×13 baking dish. Top the chicken with the sauce and cheese.
Step 6: Pop it into the oven at 350 for 10 – 15 minutes, until the cheese is melted.
Step 7: Serve alongside pasta or your favorite veggie!
So yummy! Every bite was devoured by our family.
