Savory Parmesan Chicken Recipe

On a busy week night, this easy Parmesan Chicken is a light, yet simple savory meal. I used my pancake mix for the breading on this chicken and the results were amazing! 

It's quick 35 minutes from start to finish. I topped it with a 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!

Parmesan Chicken Recipe
Serves 4-6

Ingredients:

  • ¾ c. MinusG's Aunt Katherine's Pancake & Waffle Mix
  • ¾ c. grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 lg eggs beaten 
  • ¼ tsp black pepper
  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 4 chicken breasts (boneless and skinless)
  • 1 c. marinara sauce
  • ½ c. shredded mozzarella cheese
  • ½ c. shredded provolone cheese
  • fresh herbs for garnish

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375°.
  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 eggs to the other. 
  5. Start by dipping the chicken cutlets into the eggs enough to coat.
  6. Dredge both sides into the pancake & cheese mixture until fully coated.
  7. Add the olive oil and butter to a large skillet over medium heat.
  8. Cook the chicken in batches so you don't overcrowd the pan. Cook for 3-4 minutes on each side until golden brown. *Note: chicken will be raw inside.
  9. Place chicken into a greased baking pan. Spoon the marinara on the tops of each breast.
  10. Bake in hot oven for 12-15 minutes
  11. Top the chicken with the shredded cheeses and bake until cheese is melted about another 5 minutes.
  12. Remove from heat and garnish with fresh herbs.
  13. Serve hot over your favorite noodles and/or with a side of vegetables of your choice. 

Eat. Savor. Smile.
