Chicken Parmiggiano

This was the first dish that I ever made completely by myself (about 5 years ago, my freshman year of college) and it has been my go-to meal for everything, date nights at home, dinner parties, etc… and I just love it! My love for Chicken Parmesan started many years ago at my best friend Emily’s house because her mom makes the most unbelievable Chicken Parm (I still need to get her recipe)! If Emily didn’t invite me over when it was Chicken Parm night… well let’s just say… it wasn’t pretty :)


Chicken Parmiggiano

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 onion - diced
  • 2 cloves garlic - mined
  • 3-4 basil leaves
  • 2 cans of crushed tomatoes
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 chicken breasts
  • 1/2 cup of flour
  • 2 eggs - beaten
  • 1 cup bread crumbs
  • 1 log of fresh mozzarella
  • freshly grated parmesan
  • 1 pound of pasta

Instructions

  1. Preheat the over to 450 degrees.
  2. In a saute pan coat the bottom with olive oil over medium heat. Add the diced onions and garlic and cook for 3-5 minutes until the onion becomes translucent. Then add 1/2 of the torn basil leaves. Next add the crushed tomatoes and cook for 15 minutes. After it has cooked, add salt and pepper to taste, cover the pan and let sit simmer to keep warm.
  3. For the Chicken, whisk together the eggs and place them in a shallow bowl. Add the bread crumbs to another bowl. Dip each chicken breast into the egg mixture. Then dip into bread crumbs. Saute the chicken in olive oil over medium high heat until brown. Transfer to a plate and set aside.Once the chicken is ready, spoon half of the tomato sauce into a large baking dish. Add the chicken side by side on top of the sauce. Ladle the rest of the sauce over the chicken and then add the mozzarella, Parmesan cheese and the remaining basil. Bake this in the oven until the cheese begins to turn golden brown, about 30 minutes. Serve with pasta and a big glass of wine!
