Ingredients

Directions

  1. 1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. 2. Place the chicken breasts between two sheets of plastic wrap and pound them with a meat mallet until they are about 1/2 inch thick. This will help ensure even cooking.
  3. 3. In three separate shallow bowls, set up a breading station. In the first bowl, add the flour. In the second bowl, beat the eggs. In the third bowl, combine the breadcrumbs, grated Parmesan cheese, dried oregano, dried basil, garlic powder, salt, and black pepper.
  4. 4. Dip each chicken breast into the flour, coating it completely. Shake off any excess flour.
  5. 5. Next, dip the floured chicken breast into the beaten eggs, allowing any excess to drip off.
  6. 6. Finally, coat the chicken breast in the breadcrumb mixture, pressing gently to adhere the breadcrumbs to the chicken.
  7. 7. Heat the vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Once the oil is hot, add the breaded chicken breasts and cook for about 3-4 minutes on each side, or until they are golden brown and crispy. Remove the chicken from the skillet and place them on a paper towel-lined plate to drain any excess oil.
  8. 8. In a baking dish, spread a thin layer of marinara sauce on the bottom. Place the cooked chicken breasts on top of the sauce.
  9. 9. Spoon additional marinara sauce over each chicken breast, covering them completely.
  10. 10. Sprinkle the shredded mozzarella cheese evenly over the chicken breasts.
  11. 11. Place the baking dish in the preheated oven and bake for about 20-25 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly and the chicken is cooked through.
  12. 12. Once the chicken is done, remove it from the oven and let it rest for a few minutes.
  13. 13. Garnish with fresh basil leaves and serve the Chicken Parmesan hot.
  14. Enjoy your homemade Chicken Parmesan with its crispy exterior, tender chicken, tangy marinara sauce, and gooey melted cheese. It pairs perfectly with pasta or a fresh green salad. Bon appétit!
