  • 1 cup shredded parmesan fresh, not grated or pre shredded
  • 1 egg whisked
  • salt and pepper
  • 1-2 cups marinara choose your favorite, my favorite recipe coming soon!
  • 4-6 ounces shredded mozarella


  • Preheat oven to 375°F
  • Prepare your favorite tomato sauce
  • If necessary, take your full sized chicken breast and cut them in half to make them thin, as if they are being butterflied.
  • Place chicken between two sheets of plastic wrap. With the flat side of a meat tenderizer, flatten chicken so that the thickness is unformed thoughout. Be careful not to split breast into pieces.
  • Salt and pepper the chicken breasts.
  • Place whisked egg in one bowl.
  • Mix panko crumbs and freshly shredded parmesan in one bowl.
  • Dip chicken breast in egg, then in bread crumb mixture. Cover completely.
  • In a large saute pan, heat olive oil.
  • Saute breaded chicken for about 3 minutes per side. Breasts should be thin so this should be plenty of time to cook throughout.
  • Transfer chicken to baking sheet. Pour tomato sauce over chicken. Top with shredded mozzarella or sliced fresh mozzarella.
  • Place in over for about 5 minutes, or until cheese is melted.
  • Remove from oven. Serve with a side of your favorite pasta and enjoy!
