Baked Chicken Parmesan

We do lots of sleepovers here at our house with our nieces and nephews, and we let them pick out what we are going to have for dinner that night. Which can get quite interesting!! It’s funny to see how things have progressed as they have gotten older. Take our niece Julia, who slept over last weekend, a few years back it was chicken nuggets with ketchup and now she has graduated to Chicken Parmesan…. And she is so enthusiastic about too, “Auntie Shosh you have to make Chicken Parmesan EVERY time I sleep over ok!!??”  So here is my healthier take on Chicken Parmesan …

Baked Chicken Parm

Items Needed :
Shallow baking sheet
Cooling rack to put in baking sheet

  • Chicken breast, cut in half
  • Seasoned Panko bread crumbs****
  • Flour*****
  • 2 eggs, slightly beaten
  • Salt and pepper
  • Marinara Sauce
  • Shredded Mozzarella Cheese /Parmesan Cheese mix

  • Set up three bowls or plates for dredging chicken and breading chicken
  • Season flour with salt and pepper
  • Dip chicken in flour mix, then in egg, then Panko bread crumbs, making sure to coat well
  • Arrange chicken on the cooling rack placed in the baking sheet
  • Bake chicken for 20 -35   minutes  (depending on thickness of chicken) and then top each piece with marinara sauce and a little of  the parm/mozz mix and bake an additional 10  minutes or until cheese is bubbly
  • Add additional sauce when plating

**** I gave no measurements because you may need to use more or less depending on the thickness of you chicken mine were on the thinner side

Eat and Enjoy !!!

It's hard to say no to kids when they ask for a dish. Sounds great.
