Parmesan Chicken

On a busy week night, this easy Parmesan Chicken is a light, simple, savory meal.  We start by blending the pancake & waffle mix with parmesan cheese to make the breading on this chicken and the results were amazing! 

It's quick 35-40 minutes from start to finish. I topped it with my favorite marinara sauce, Rao's, shredded cheese and a combination of fresh basil, thyme and parsley. Yum! Enjoy Parmesan chicken again! Follow these easy steps for crispy and tender cutlets!

Savory Parmesan Chicken 
Serves 4-6

Ingredients:

  • 4 chicken breasts (boneless and skinless)
  • ¼ tsp black pepper
  • ½ c. MinusG's Aunt Katherine's Pancake & Waffle Mix
  • ½ c. grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 lg egg beaten 
  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil (extra for cooking)
  • 1 c. marinara sauce
  • ½ c. shredded mozzarella cheese
  • ½ c. shredded provolone cheese
  • fresh herbs for garnish

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375° and grease 9" x 13" baking pan.
  2. Slice chicken breasts to ½ inch thickness or flatten between to pieces of saran wrap or parchment paper with a flat kitchen mallet to ½ inch thickness.
  3. Season with black pepper.
  4. Using two shallow bowls, combine the pancake mix and the Parmesan cheese in one bowl, and the beaten egg to the other. 
  5. Add butter and olive oil to a 10" skillet over medium heat. 
  6. Start by dipping the chicken cutlets into the egg enough to coat.
  7. Dredge chicken, both sides into the pancake & cheese mixture until fully coated.
  8. Sear chicken in skillet in batches so it does not overcrowd the pan. Cook for 3-4 minutes on each side until golden brown. *Note: chicken will be raw inside.
  9. Place chicken into prepared pan. Spoon the marinara on the tops of each breast.
  10. Bake in hot oven for 12-15 minutes. (While baking, drop noodles into hot water and or cut fresh vegetables for a salad.)
  11. Top chicken with shredded cheeses and bake for 5 minutes or until cheese is melted.
  12. Remove from heat and garnish with fresh herbs.
  13. Serve over noodles and/or with a side of vegetables of your choice. 

Eat. Savor. Smile.
