  • 2 large chicken breasts
  • 1 cup Italian breadcrumbs
  • 4 tbsp butter salted, melted
  • 1 cup parmesan cheese
  • 1 tbsp Italian seasoning
  • 3 tbsp marinara sauce
  • 6 tbsp mozzarella cheese
  • fresh parsley for garnish


  • Heat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Cut chicken breasts in half and pound them to an even consistency.
  • Brush chicken breasts with butter. Mix breadcrumbs and parmesan cheese and Italian seasoning in a small bowl.
  • Dip the chicken breasts into the breadcrumb mixture until fully coated. Place chicken breasts in a prepared 9 x 13 baking dish. 
  • Bake the chicken for 15 minutes. Remove chicken from oven and baste each chicken breast with 1 tbsp of marinara.
  • Top each chicken breast with 2 tbsp of mozzarella cheese. Garnish with fresh parsley. 
  • Turn the oven broiler on high.

  • Remove baked parmesan chicken from the oven and serve immediately with your favorite sides. 


  1. If you don't have a meat mallet, consider using the bottom of a skillet, a rolling pin, or an empty bottle of wine to pound down the chicken to an even consistency. 
  2. Store any leftovers in the refrigerator in an air tight container and use within 3 days. 
  3. Serve leftovers with extra cheese, or slice the leftovers and serve as a sandwich or over a salad. 
  4. Consider changing this recipe up by experimenting with different marinara and other Italian sauces.
