Ive tried quite a few Chicken parmesan recipes and this one is by far the best and easiest.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place chicken between 2 sheets of heavy-duty plastic wrap; flatten to 1/4-inch thickness using a meat mallet or rolling pin.
  2. Dip chicken in egg; dredge in crumbs.
  3. Melt butter in a skillet over medium-high heat; add chicken, and cook 2 minutes on each side or until browned.
  4. Pour spaghetti sauce over chicken. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 10-15 minutes. Sprinkle with cheeses. Cover and simmer 5 more minutes or until cheese melts.

Yum! I will try another spaghetti sauce next time as the one I had seemed overly salty for Chicken Parmesan. I think a pretty plain almost slightly sweet tomato sauce might work best.THIS WAS SO EASY!!! :) My kids say its a keeper too!
