Chicken Parmigiana

by Lisa K. on Tue, March 14, 2017

We did a tweak for this recipe. The chicken is baked without the sauce to keep the coating crispy. The zing from the tomato sauce balances the cheesiness out beautifully.

Melted cheese over crispy breaded chicken served with robust tomato sauce... Yum!

Serves 2 - 3 people

Flatten the chicken breast out with a rolling pin or a use the bottom of a sauté pan. This will even out the thickness and ensure even cooking.
