Baked Chicken Parmesan

Baked Chicken Parmesan is a quick and easy version of an Italian restaurant staple—not to mention it’s a bit healthier! Made with juicy chicken breast, Italian-spiced breadcrumbs, marinara sauce, and fresh mozzarella cheese.

Let’s get started!


Preheat the oven to 425°F and slice both chicken breasts horizontally to create 4 thin pieces.


Whisk the eggs in a shallow dish until they are thoroughly beaten and then dip each piece of chicken in the eggs. Ensure that the chicken is fully coated in the eggs.


Transfer all four pieces of chicken to a Ziploc bag with the panko bread crumbs, Italian bread crumbs, and parmesan cheese. Shake the bag for about a minute, ensuring that the chicken is evenly coated in the bread crumb mixture.


Place the chicken on a baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes, or until the top of the chicken is golden brown and reaches an internal temperature of 165°F.


Top the chicken with a few spoonfuls of marinara sauce and a slice of mozzarella cheese. Return the pan to the oven for 5 more minutes to give the cheese time to melt.


Remove the pan from the oven, serve, and enjoy!
