Recipe Notes

Tips to make this the Best Chicken Parmesan you'll ever make: 

  1. Take time to blend your parmesan for your chicken coating. It helps give a crispness to the chicken that makes a huge flavor difference. 
  2. Use paper plates for the coating and the egg wash. It saves dishes and works just as well! 
  3. Make sure you put your chicken breasts in your pan first, before you add your marinara, It helps keep the bottom of the chicken to not get soggy. 
  4. Don't have parmesan? Shredded mozzarella is fine, too. 
  5. Vegetarian? Use eggplant in place of chicken. Layer in a casserole dish for a fun spin!
