Chicken Parm is definitely one of my favorite choices when it comes to Italian fare. A tender chicken cutlet, breaded and pan fried – then slathered in a zesty tomato sauce and melted cheese. How can you not love it? It’s also a relatively quick dinner, that can be pulled together with pantry staples.

I remember my early days; making this dish with pre-breaded chicken breasts and jarred tomato sauce. But, once I made it from scratch, there was just no comparison. No going back. I’ve been known to use a jarred sauce in a pinch, actually have a couple of jars of sauce in the pantry that I need to whittle down. But, after making this super quick marinara a few months ago – I just haven’t been using the store bought stuff. If you’ve not made chicken parm at home before, give it a try. It’s a classic dish that anyone should be proud to have “under their belt”. Enjoy!

    My husband claims he doesn’t like chicken parm and we have had many arguments about it. I mean, it’s chicken. And marinara. How can someone NOT like it?! Anyway, this looks so good. I’m gonna send him the link to see if he’ll let me make it. 😛

    HI there! I loved this recipe! It was easy to follow and I have always been a fan of Chicken Parmesan! I am a fairly new cook and had a few problems with cooking the chicken and wondered if you might have a few suggestions. As I was putting the chicken in the frying pan on medium-high heat, the batter browned almost to burning in about a minute…should I have added less oil or more, turned the heat down? Since the batter was pretty brown so quickly, I had to cook chicken in the oven for longer and the batter got more brown and the chicken chewy….help please!

      Caitlin, sounds like the heat may have been a little high. Maybe try medium heat next time!

      When frying chicken brown each side of chicken for 1-2 min on med/ high heat then turn down to low heat and cover with lid….continue cooking until chicken is tender then remove lid for last few minutes of cooking so the crust will be crispy 🙂 hope this helps

    Thank you so much for this it was gorgeous! I live in Italy and it’s rarely seen here it’s more of an American Italian dish, here they make it with eggplant. My Italian husband loved it and wants it to feature on the menu more often ;

    I made this for company, always a little worried when making something new. It was so simple, and the recipe was perfect, wouldn’t change a thing. It’s my new favorite Sunday dinner.
