Rating –  ⭐⭐⭐⭐       Prep-Time – 30 minutes     Serving-Size – 4 Servings


  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup seasoned breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 cups marinara sauce
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Fresh parsley, chopped (optional)

Cooking Instructions:

  • Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C).
  • Pound the chicken breasts to an even thickness, about 1/2 inch.
  • Season both sides of the chicken breasts with salt and pepper.
  • Dredge each chicken breast in flour, shaking off any excess.
  • In a shallow bowl, beat the eggs.
  • In another shallow bowl, mix together the breadcrumbs and Parmesan cheese.
  • Dip each chicken breast in the beaten eggs, then coat in the breadcrumb mixture, pressing to adhere.
  • Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
  • Add the chicken breasts and cook until golden brown and cooked through, about 4-5 minutes per side.
  • Transfer the chicken breasts to a baking dish.
  • Spoon marinara sauce over each chicken breast.
  • Sprinkle shredded mozzarella cheese on top of each chicken breast.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes, until the cheese, is melted and bubbly.
  • Garnish with chopped parsley, if desired, and serve.

Relevant Notes & Tips:

  • For extra crispy chicken, use panko breadcrumbs instead of regular breadcrumbs.
  • Make sure the oil is hot before adding the chicken to the skillet to ensure a crispy crust.
  • Use homemade or high-quality store-bought marinara sauce for the best flavor.
  • If you’re short on time, you can use pre-made chicken cutlets instead of pounding and breading the chicken yourself.
