This is very easy to make and it tastes great! Originally from Southern Living. You may need to add another egg if your chicken breasts are large.

This was awesome as others are stating. I put some sauce on the bottom of baking dish, added chicken and topped with more sauce and a combo of prov and mozz. Used seasoned panko. Simple and delish. Love me some Italian food!

Really is quick and easy compared to other sites. The method is very accurate and end result is very yummy! I would recommend halfing the quantity of chicken fillets if you are making for less than 4 people :)

This was good and easy to make. I made this for my husband for Father's Day as he loved chicken parmesan. I followed the recipe except that I used pam instead of butter in the pan. I also did this all on the stove as I didn't feel like heating up the oven. I also used sliced mozzarella cheese instead of shredded as that is what I had on hand. We all enjoyed this but my husband thought the coating needed a bit more seasoning. He said it needed some pepper and maybe some garlic powder.
